    Great pitching and hard hitting propelled the Coalfield Lady Jackets to a decisive 15-0 win over the Sunbright Lady Tigers last Monday. 

    The Lady Jackets got off to a quick start with a hit and a stolen base by Mikayla Heidel. Makenzy Morgan hit an RBI double, driving in Heidel then Morgan scored on a pass ball giving the Lady Jackets a two-run lead. 

    The Lady Jackets quickly extended that lead with a 9-run second inning.

    The Wartburg Lady Bulldogs closed out their regular season with a 13-0 victory at Oakdale last Monday.

    Pitcher Madelyn Cox had a spectacular performance in the circle for the Lady Bulldogs, allowing only one hit and no walks while striking out eight on the day.

    Cox got plenty of run support as the Lady Bulldogs scored in four of their five trips to the plate.

    The first run came in the top of the first inning when Alexis Harrison walked and scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Allie Aytes.

  • Coalfield slams OS, 11-0

  • Eagles knock off Tigers in...

    The Oakdale Eagles kicked off the postseason in impressive fashion last Wednesday afternoon, as Darren Norris’ squad rolled past Sunbright, 19-4, in a District 3A Tournament play-in game at Oakdale.

    Although the Eagles won by 15 runs, there were some anxious moments in the first inning as Riley Underwood, Holden Ladd, Riley Crawley and Alessandro Dentis crossed the plate for the Tigers.

    Oakdale, however, answered with a huge bottom of the first inning. The Eagles sent 15 batters to the plate and 11 would come around to score.

  • Lady Jackets top Oneida

    A 10-run first inning was more than enough for the Coalfield Lady Yellow Jackets to cruise to a 14-2 victory over Oneida last Tuesday.

    Coalfield’s bats came out on fire as the Lady Jackets picked up 10 hits in the first inning alone. Mikayla Heidel opened the frame with a double and later in the inning Malachi Armes, Carlee Kees, Alexis Morrison, Heidel, Makenzy Morgan and Anna Smith all had RBI hits.

    Kees’ hit was a two-run double.
