Lady Ads dump BHS, edge Rebs
Bearden softball wins 3 in Greeneville tourney

Farragut cleared its biggest District 4-AAA softball hurdle last week — on the road, no less — while finishing off a season sweep of its archrival.

A 3-1 victory at Maryville, avenging the Lady Ads’ home loss to MHS earlier this season and improved Farragut to 10-1 in 4-AAA while pulling into a virtual tie for first-place entering the week. They are 18-5 overall.

“That was a big game,” FHS head coach David Moore said.

Bearden recovered from its loss against Farragut to post four wins last week, three coming in the Tiny Day Red Edmunds Memorial Tournament in Greeneville. More on BHS later in this story.


The Lady Admirals wasted no time jumping ahead of Maryville. Stephanie Harris’ RBI triple scored Melissa Eggert in the first inning. Rachel Ingleby added a sacrifice fly.

Laura Greeley’s fourth-inning RBI single scored Megan Harris, who singled.

Ingleby, pitching staff ace, fired a one-hitter with nine strikeouts and one walk. The senior standout retired 15 Lady Rebs in a row.

It only took five innings to dispose of Bearden, 11-1, in a Monday, April 14, clash at FHS’s Bellamy Field.

Stephanie Harris’ frozen rope two-run home run deep to left field began a six-run first inning. Megan Harris added an RBI triple and Lyndsey Slade an RBI double.

Andi Murry’s two-RBI single capped the inning. Amanda Tranum’s RBI single ended the game in the bottom of the fifth.

Ingleby pitched a three-hitter with five strikeouts.

Morgan Holbrook picked up the pitching victory at Sevier County Thursday, April 17, as FHS won 15-3. She allowed just one earned run and four hits with three strikeouts in three innings.

Stephanie Harris again led the winning offense, stroking a solo home run while also doubling. LaShae Wallace had two hits plus two stolen bases.

Holbrook helped her cause with two hits and two RBI. Both of Megan Harris’ hits were doubles.

Ingleby and Meade each had two hits. Paige Kula added a two-RBI double.

Farragut’s one loss last week came at home against Halls, 3-2, Wednesday, April 16. Slade, Murry and the Harris sisters provided the Lady Ads’ four hits.


Bearden won two tourney games Sunday: Cosby 11-1, which included a Meagan Fredenberg home run, and Greeneville 6-2.

Four games Friday included a 4-3 win against Greeneville plus losses to Volunteer, Daniel Boone and Cherokee.

“My catcher Meagan Fredenberg hit the ball real well the whole tournament,” BHS head coach Gary Mashburn said. “We had good pitching today from Kaylee Heemsoth [Greeneville] and Laura Hensley [Cosby].”

In other games last week, Bearden beat Sevier County 15-3, but lost to Heritage and Webb.
