Taylor High School
The Lady Titans came away with their first Hoosier Heartland Conference win beating Eastern 27-3. The Titans bats came out hot right from the start. We were able to score 3 runs in the first and tack on 20 more runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings. Senior Rachel Hafley took the mound for the Titans for the first time this season and pitched a great game. 5innings, 6-K’s, 1-BB and only allowed 1 earned run. I was really pleased with the way Rachel commanded all of her pitches today, she stayed focused throughout the entire game. The Titans had a great performance from Senior Emma Williams at the plate. Williams recorded her first Home Run this season going 3-5 with 3RBI’s. Senior Lydia Owens also had a great hitting day going 4-5, 2RBI’s. Senior Savannah Delgado went 3-4, 1-2B, 4RBI’s, sac bunt. Shaelah Eliason 2-4, 2-2B, 1-BB, 3RBI’s, Lanee Butzin 2-4, 4RBI’s, Jada Critchlow 2-5, 4RBI’s, Tori Gilstrap 2-3, 1-2B. We had a long talk before the game on our batting and I challenged our seniors to step up and that’s exactly what they did today. Titans are 4-1 on the season and take on another conference team Tri-Central on Monday.
