Pictured is #2 Audrie Chaney
Last night was the perfect way for the Hackett Lady Hornets to end schedule play before Districts. The sun was shining, there was a light breeze, they were hosting the Waldron Lady Bulldogs, and they were celebrating lone senior Audrie Chaney for Senior Night. For the cherry on top, Hackett added one more win to their already impressive stats.
The 19-5 Lady Hornets were able to keep the Lady Bulldogs off their scent for seven innings as they secured a 6-3 victory. Waldron and Hackett are pretty evenly matched as they both sit in top positions in their conferences. The Lady Hornets pitching circle saw two pitchers last night during the game. Kayla Richardson buzzed out 79 pitches to 19 batters striking out five. She also made one run, one putout, and one assist.
Audrie Chaney propelled out 55 pitches to 14 batters striking out two. Chaney also impressed with three hits, three runners batted in, four putouts, and one assist. Autum Neal scored one run, one hit, one RBI, and one putout. Rachel Widmer made one run. Madeline Freeman gained one run, one steal, two putouts, and three assists.
Jamye Durham rang up one run, two hits, and two putouts. Madi Taylor nailed one putout. Sarah White secured one run and eight putouts. And Shayla Foster obtained one hit, one RBI, one putout, and two assists. The Hackett Lady Hornets will get to rest for a day and prepare for District play tomorrow.
