Lady Jets finished third in District 6AAA Tournament

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School Lady Jets softball team finished third in the District 6AAA Tournament, after dropping a 6-4 decision to top seed and host Cookeville Wednesday evening. CCHS defeated Warren County 3-2 Tuesday night in extra innings.

Whitney Hankins was the losing pitcher, allowing six runs on 10 hits with three strikeouts and one walk and poked three singles with one RBI to spark the Lady Jets.

Amber Johnson smacked two hits with an RBI, while Emily Terpening, Erin Dille, Tori Kerley and Calli Borgialli each smacked one hit; however, CCHS left 11 runners on base in the contest.

CCHS had runners on base in six of the seven innings, scoring once in the second and three in the seventh inning.

Terpening led off the game with a triple, but was stranded.

Cookeville took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first on a single by Abbi Reeder, a stolen base, a walk, a fielder's choice and a two-run double by Peyton Price. Reeder was forced out at third on a throw from Bailey Woods to Lydia Harris.

Bailey Woods led off the top of the second with a double, was sacrificed to third and scored on an error to slice the lead to 2-1.

Dille singled in the third, and Kenzie Woods reached on error, but was forced out at second on Bri Qualls groundout. Bailey Woods walked with two out, but CCHS left the bases loaded.

In the fourth, Hankins and Johnson poked back-to-back singles, and Terpening reached on error; however, the Lady Jets left two more runners stranded.

Cookeville made it 3-1 in the bottom of the third on a single by Jenna Roberts and Meghan Winningham's RBI double, and added two more runs in the fifth with back-to-back singles by Reeder and Roberts, a two-run double by Winningham, who was later forced out at third on a throw from Bailey Woods to Lydia Harris. Peyton Price also singled.

The Lady Cavaliers extended the lead to 6-1 in the bottom of the sixth on a two-out double by Heidi Smiih and an RBI single by Reeder.

Kenzi Woods started the rally in the top of the seventh with a one-out walk and Qualls reached on an error. With two out, consecutive RBI singles by Kerley, Hankins and Johnson sliced the lead to 6-4, but the Lady Jets couldn't get another hit to tie the game.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
