Softball Update

Wayne Howard

The West Lincoln softball team is on top in the Catawba Valley Conference after posting two wins last week: on Tuesday (April 5th) the Rebels beat Maiden 6-4; on Friday (April 8th), they shut out Bunker Hill 15-0. In the Tuesday win over Maiden, Carolina Robinson went 2 for 4 with a home run and batted in four runs. Gracie Elmore went 3 for 4 including a double; Farrah Richardson went 3 for 5 including a double and Chloe Norman batted 2 for 3.

On Friday, the Rebels slugged out 15 runs in two innings and the game ended after the top of the third with a 15-0 score. Surprisingly, those 15 runs were scored with no home runs and only two extra base hits.

The Rebels are 11-3 overall and 5-1 in the conference. They're tied with Bandys for tops in the league. The two teams have played twice: Bandys won an 8-inning game 6-5 on March 8th; West won on Friday April 1st 6-4.

West will host a non-conference game with East Lincoln Tuesday (April 12th); play at home against Newton-Conover at 6 PM Wednesday; then travel to West Caldwell on Thursday (5 PM).

East Lincoln continues atop the Western Foothills Conference. The unbeaten Mustangs are now 14-0 overall, 10-0 in the league. That has them two games in front of second place North Lincoln and 2½ ahead of Fred T. Foard.

East scored 49 runs in three games last week: a 12-0 win over Hickory on Wednesday, a 23-1 win at Statesville Thursday, and a 14-0 win at West Iredell Friday. Junior Leah Correll has 13 of those 15 wins. Her ERA is an amazing 0.65. She has struck out 138 of the 261 batters she has faced while giving up only 37 hits and only one walk.

What sports are important to you?  We try hard to keep up with high school sports and to recognize the student athletes from local schools. We don't attempt to provide info on professional sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, etc.) or college sports.  We don't report regularly on NASCAR. Most of that info is readily available from other sources.  If there's something you'd like to see us cover (or cover better) let us know.  We depend on coaches, players, parents and other fans to keep us informed about their teams.  We want to report on sports that interest our readers.  

The Lincoln Herald has been providing local news, information about community events, sports scores, the obituaries, and more--for FREE--since 2012.
