Twenty four hours after scoring 12 runs on Stone Memorial, the Cumberland County Lady Jets softball team posted 11 more in an 11-1 run-rule victory over Van Buren County in non-district competition.

Van Buren led 1-0 after the first inning before the Jets erupted for seven unanswered runs in the second inning, three in the third and one in the fourth. 

The contest was called after the top of the fifth inning due to the TSSAA’s “10 after five” mercy rule.

CCHS pitcher Ivy Loveday posted a stellar performance, holding Van Buren County to four hits and one run while striking out two.

Senior Maggie McClain and freshman Sierra Reed each recorded two hits, with Reed scoring three runs and adding an RBI and a stolen base.

Jade Norrod, Diane McCain and Madison Kerley each added one hit as well. 

Kerley had three RBIs and reached via error twice in the victory.

The underclassmen-heavy Lady Jets will look to stretch their winning streak to three games on Thursday against White County.
