BHS softball still struggling

After another frustrating week, the Bearden Lady Bulldogs are headed for their first losing season since 1997.

Bearden’s overall record drops to 10-17 entering the week, and ending the regular season 4-10 in District 4-AAA heading into the district tourney beginning Friday, May 5, at William Blount High School.

The Lady Bulldogs closed out the week Friday, April 28, with a doubleheader at Fulton in what turned out to be the biggest disappointment of the week.

“The first game was the pivotal game, we still had a chance to break even with games we have got coming up this week and we had runners in scoring position in every inning and didn’t score,” BHS head coach Mark Blevins said. “Then in game two we just let everybody play.”

Kelly Callaway tripled and Paige Harmony doubled, but neither was able to score as Rachel Rowan was the losing pitcher in a 1-0 defeat.

In game two, Fulton won 9-0.

On Wednesday, April 26, the Lady Bulldogs hosted Lenoir City and won 4-1, but it wasn’t easy.

Bearden was down 1-0 heading into the fifth when Amanda McCollum tripled and ended up scoring on a grounder.

The Lady Bulldogs took the lead in the sixth by scoring three with five hits, including doubles by Megan Fredenberg and Rowan.

Bearden played two games Tuesday, April 25. The first game was on the road against Maryville, losing 7-2. The second was against Heritage at HHS, as BHS lost 3-0.

On Monday, April 24 Bearden traveled to William Blount and lost 11-0. Singles by Boris, Fredenberg and Jordan Thompson led BHS.

“I would say there is not a league in Tennessee that is any better than District 4-AAA in softball and we expected William Blount to probably beat us, but we were hoping we would win one of those three, Heritage, Maryville or William Blount,” Blevins said.

“... Fulton was where the season was on the line as far as between still having a chance for a break-even season or going back to a losing streak ... .”
