Greeneville tourney nets four wins for BHS softball


GREENEVILLE — The Bearden Lady Bulldogs softball team capped off its week with a solid showing in the Tiny Day Red Edmunds tournament April 21-23.

Rain cancelled Friday’s games, but play resumed Saturday and Sunday and the Lady Bulldogs capitalized by winning three of four tourney games.

Bearden (9-12 overall entering the week and 3-7 in District 4-AAA) opened Saturday play against Cocke County with an easy 15-5 win.

Junior Rachel Rowan got the win on the mound and Paige Harmony hit a three-RBI double to get the offense rolling. Rowan doubled and Jennifer Zurakowski hit a pair of doubles as well.

The bats continued to roll in the second game as the Lady Bulldogs defeated Sullivan South 7-0. Rowan was the winning pitcher and Megan Fredenberg’s double paced a BHS offense that had seven hits.

Bearden came back Sunday morning and defeated David Crockett 5-0. Rowan was the winning pitcher as she notched her second shutout in a row. Fredenberg led the offense, going 2-3 at the plate.

However, Bearden’s luck ran out against South Greene as they were defeated 6-5. Amanda McCollum led the Lady Bulldogs offense with two RBIs.

“We just fell apart in the second game today,” BHS head coach Mark Blevins said.

After having the bases loaded in the first inning and failing to score, South Greene made Bearden pay the following inning.

South Greene loaded the bases in the top of the second, and after a costly mental lapse defensively, Bearden surrendered four runs.

“We made some mental mistakes in that game, but overall it was a pretty good week,” Blevins said. “We are up and down. The [Sullivan South] game and the [David Crockett] game, I thought, were our two best games, and then we turned right around.”

BHS 3 CARTER 0

Rowan’s shut out performance led the Lady Bulldogs to a 3-0 victory in game one of the doubleheader Wednesday, April 19, at Carter. Bearden scored all of its runs in the first inning.

BHS 12 CARTER 5

Zurakowski doubled to lead the BHS offense in the nightcap of the doubleheader. Rowan was the winning pitcher.





SEVIER COUNTY 10 BHS 4

Bearden couldn’t slow down Sevier County Tuesday, April 18, at SCHS. Rowan was the losing pitcher. “We did not play well at Sevier County, we had a ton of errors,” Blevins said. “They put the ball in play and we weren’t able to make the plays.”
