Pitching holds up well in FHS softball wins

Just when Farragut’s hitting was supposed to carry its pitching this season, the Jefferson County game turned that theory on its head.

Despite only two hits, the Lady Admirals opened the season with a 3-2 home victory against the Lady Patriots Monday, March 9, led by winning pitcher Allison Delaney.

The junior had solid control, walking none with four strikeouts while scattering eight hits, as FHS went on to complete a perfect 3-0 first week slate.

“I was proud of Allison, that’s what our pitching staff’s going to have to do,” FHS head coach David Moore said.

The Lady Ads also won at South-Doyle 9-4 Tuesday, March 10, behind the “solid” pitching of freshman starter Kaci Murr, who went six innings before being relieved by Morgan Holbrook in the seventh. Neither pitcher allowed a walk.

“I’m proud of Kaci and Morgan on their pitching performances,” Moore said.

Stephanie Harris, FHS standout first baseman, smacked two home runs against SDHS.

Farragut ended the week by crushing Lenoir City 16-0 at home March 12 in a game lasting just three innings.

While Delaney was winning pitcher, allowing no hits and just one walk, the FHS bats exploded with 12 runs in the second inning.

Holbrook had two extra-base hits and four RBIs, Gray a two-RBI double, Murr two hits and two RBI, and Stephanie Harris and Lashae Wallace two hits and one RBI apiece. Melissa Eggert smacked an RBI double.
