Lady Jets defeat Livingston for first win of ‘13

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School Lady Jets softball team opened the season with a 12-9 victory over the Livingston Lady Wildcats on a cold, blustery Tuesday at Jet Park, giving first-year coaches Samantha Donathan, Rob Akins and Bo Woods their first win.

Whitney Hankins picked up the win, allowing four hits and five runs with five strikeouts and three walks, while Bri Qualls gave up four runs on hit with one strikeout and two walks in three innings.

Qualls smacked three hits with two runs and one RBI, while Callie Borgialli had two hits with two RBIs, and Erin Dille had two hits with an RBI. Bailey Woods, Tori Kerley, Lydia Harris, Hankins and Kenzie Woods each poked one hit.

The Lady Jets gave Hankins a 2-0 first-inning lead on a double by Qualls, a walk to Dille, two stolen bases and a passed ball.

CCHS upped the lead to 5-0 in the bottom of the second. Hankins singled, with courtesy runner Erin Terpening reaching second on a sacrifice by Borgialli and scored when Destiny Lewis reached on an error. Lewis scored on another error.

Bailey Woods ripped a home run for a 4-0 advantage. Qualls walked and scored on Dille's double to deep center field for the 5-0 lead.

Hankins allowed one baserunner in the first inning and one in the second, before allowing two runs in the top of the third on a walk, an error and double by Mainord, and three more runs in the top of the fourth on a walk, a fielder's choice, a sacrifice fly, a RBI double by Grimsley and an RBI single by Waddell.

CCHS added two runs in the bottom of the fourth for a 6-2 lead on a walk, a sacrifice, fielder's choice and back-to-back singles by Dille and Tori Kerley. Dille was injured sliding into third on Kerley's hit, but later returned to the field.

Qualls replaced Hankins on the hill, allowing a walk in the fifth, and retiring the side in order in the sixth.

The Lady Jets scored four insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth for a 12-5 advantage on three walks, a fielder's choice, RBI singles by Qualls and Harris and a two-run double by Borgialli.

Livingston added four runs in the top of the seventh on an error, three stolen bases, two walks, a passed ball, three fielder's choices and an RBI single by Grimsley.

Bailey Woods made a couple of nice plays at short, and catcher Katie Van Horn threw out a runner at third base. The Lady Jets also threw out a runner at home.

CCHS travels to DeKalb County tonight for two five-inning games, beginning at 4:30, and will travel to Rockwood Monday, before hosting SMHS March 21 at 5 p.m.
