Ingleby perfect game, two other no-hitters, break new FHS ground

Rachel Ingleby shot out no-hitters last week like she was firing a machine gun.

The Farragut softball pitching staff ace hurled a perfect game to beat District 4-AAA archrival Maryville 2-0 at MHS March 29, after firing consecutive no-hitters the prior two days.

“My assistants asked me if I’d ever had three straight no-hitters and I said no,” said veteran FHS head coach David Moore, whose team entered the week 10-2 overall, 4-0 in the district. “She had an outstanding week by anybody’s standards.

“She’s on her way to an outstanding season.”

With help from Kristen Murr (two hitless innings), Ingleby fired four hitless innings March 27 to blank South-Doyle 10-0. Ingleby, a junior, had 10 strikeout and one walk.

Murr had two strikeouts.

Offensively, Ingleby helped her own cause with three hits. Keri Meade led the winning offense with four hits, including a triple and two RBIs. Lyndsey Slade helped ignite the FHS attack with a triple.

Ingleby needed no help to no-hit Webb on the road March 28 in a 2-0 FHS win, striking out 15 with two walks in seven innings.

Offensively, freshman Stephanie Harris led with two hits, including a two-RBI single in the fourth inning to account for all the scoring.

Perfect at MHS, Ingleby fanned 12 Lady Rebels. Christine Hannahs doubled home LaShae Wallace in the second inning, then scored herself thanks to a throwing error. Morgan Holbrook had two hits.

Defensively, Meade [third baseman] and Sarah Young [shortstop] both made some very good defensive plays to preserve the game,” Moore said.

The only blemish came March 30 at Karns, as KHS blanked Farragut 2-0.

Ingleby took the loss, allowing four hits while striking out six.

Top FHS bats were Young and Holbrook with two hits each, and Harris with one.
