Lady Horde pitcher owns game

B y Jaime Thomas

The girls softball started off their season on a strong foot taking home a 12-1 league win at Stillwater on Monday.

Katie Leavey, senior center fielder, built up the momentum of a six-point lead in the first inning with a triple hit.  And Hannah Bassett kept that pace by pitching a complete game.

The sophomore pitcher shined from the mound with 11 strikeouts and no walks to lead the Lady Horde to their first win of the season. She also collected three hits.

Gabby Hilder, sophomore second baseman and Jordan Harrison, junior catcher, each had two hits and two RBIs. Junior designated player Kelsie Jones added a double to help seal the win.

Stillwater’s sole action was Amber Kelly with a hit and an RBI in the third inning. They remained scoreless for the other six innings.

The girls take on Hoosick Valley today and Hoosick Falls on Monday.
