FHS softball starts 7-1

Solid defense, a No. 2 pitcher who shined and an outfielder who played off the charts highlighted Farragut's 4-1 record at the 64-team Hendersonville Commando Classic last weekend.

It also completed a week that began especially well after beating archrival Bearden 5-0 Tuesday, March 13, at FHS's Bellamy Field in the 2007 season opener.

Against Bearden, “We played solid defense and Rachel [Ingleby] pitched an excellent game,” FHS head coach David Moore said about his staff ace, who struck out 15 while allowing just three hits and one walk. “Morgan Holbrook had a big hit early to put us up two-to-nothing. Sara [Young] had a solid game, had two good at-bats. And Keri Meade had a big hit.”

In Hendersonville, Farragut won its pool with victories against Station Camp (6-1) and Tullahoma (4-0) Friday, March 16, and McEwen (8-0) Saturday, March 17.

“We played solid defense all week, I don't think we made but a handful of errors,” said Moore, whose Lady Ads finished its first week 7-1, 2-0 in District 4-AAA.

Individually, “Sara Rini just had an outstanding week,” Moore said about his senior outfielder. “She had one stretch there where she probably got on base ten or twelve straight times. Played excellent defense.”

Backing up Ingleby, “I'm really pleased with Kristin Murr,” Moore said about his No. 2 pitcher who fired a complete game three-hit shutout against Tullahoma, then went four innings to blank McEwen. “She got three wins this week stepping up as our number two pitcher. Didn't give up a run.”

Beating Arlington 15-0 Saturday in post-pool play, Farragut then lost to Lebanon 2-1 Saturday.

Against Station Camp, Rini led with three hits followed by Meade with two hits and two RBIs. Fueling the attack against McEwen was senior shortstop Young, who had three hits.

Drilling Arlington in a three-inning game, Holbrook and Ingleby each homered. Freshman Stephanie Harris smacked two hits, including a double, and LaShae Wallace added a hit and three RBIs. Allison Devaney pitched one scoreless inning.

Against Bearden, Young led the winners with two hits, two RBIs. Bearden (1-1) had three hits: Rachel Rowan, Meagan Fredenberg and Elizabeth Gray.
