Vigorous day 1 of Tiny Day Classic

By

GREENEVILLE — Five high schools from Carter County along with Johnson County took part in the Tiny Day softball tournament in Greeneville on Friday. Play will resume on Saturday weather permitting.

 

Happy Valley…………………… 10 

North Greene……………………. 9 

The Warriors scored three times in the seventh inning to knock off North Greene 10-9.

Kaitlin Campbell singled and Brooke Simmons doubled to get things started. Brittany Morefield delivered a two-run double that broke the 6-6 tie. Coffey’s sacrifice fly pushed the lead at 9-6.

The Lady Huskies tallied two runs in the seventh, but Morefield came on to pitch and preserve the win for Simmons.

Kaylee Street swung the big stick, batting 3-4. Hannah Blevins was 2-4, as was Campbell.

 

Happy Valley…………………… 12 

Cocke County……………………. 1 

Brittany Morefield fired a four-hitter in only her second game back after an injury kept her out for two weeks.

She struck out five with no walks in her complete-game performance.

Morefield and Hannah Blevins topped Happy Valley at the plate, going 2-3 apiece. Jessa Dugger, Kaira Coffey, Brooke Simmons and Kaitlin Campbell each went 2-4.

Krisley Roberts, Allison Williams and Kaylee Street provided one apiece. Every Lady Warrior starter hit safely.

It was the first time that Happy Valley has had its original starting lineup that they opened the season with in five weeks. Coach Mike Dorsey was a happy camper to see all of them back from the injury bug.

“It helps because we were playing well at the time,” said Dorsey. “But for some reason we progressed backward. We had a come-to-Jesus meeting on the way over to get things worked out. We mixed up the lineup and the kids responded well. We hope it will carry over on Saturday.”

 

Elizabethton……………………. 20 

West Greene……………………… 4 

The Lady Cyclones almost ran out the time limit early by scoring 14 times in the second inning after putting up five runs in the first frame.

Emily Thornton went the distance on the mound to earn the win. She helped her cause by blasting a grand slam in the second frame.

Reazyn DeMoss went 3-3 with three RBIs to lead ’Betsy offensively. Caley Hodge was 2-3 with a home run and three RBIs. Summer Reece had a 2-3 outing with three RBIs and a triple.

 

Morristown East……………….. 8 

Elizabethton……………………… 3 

The Lady Cyclones ran into a red hot Morristown East squad in the second tilt.

The Lady Hurricanes jumped on top 3-1 in the first inning and put the game away by scoring five times during the third.

Sophie Bremer had a nice game, going 2-2 with a walk. Lindsey Cunningham added a two-run homer. Reazyn DeMoss, Summer Reece, Caley Hodge and Casey Jones batted 1-3 each.

“We played pretty well overall,” said Elizabethton head coach LeAnna Click. “East was a very good team. I thought our kids fought hard to stay in the game. We just couldn’t ever catch up to them.”

 

Cloudland…………………………. 6 

South Greene……………………. 3 

The Highlanders shocked South Greene with a four-run fifth inning to earn a 6-3 win.

Cloudland gave up three unearned runs in the first inning, but held the Lady Rebels scoreless over the final four frames.

The Lady Highlanders trailed 3-0 before a two-run double by Dakota Jarrett in the third got them back in it at 3-2.

They put the game away with four big hits in the final inning that led to four runs. Hope Baker and Kelly King got things started with singles. Hughes brought home the pair with a double in the gap while another two-bagger by Andrea Gwyn allowed Hughes and Rachel Sparks to score.

Hughes was a late entry on the mound for Cloudland, replacing starting pitcher Hunter McKinney, who has injured before the game.

She allowed only six hits while earning the win.

Gwyn, Jarrett, Hughes, King, Baker and Martina Presnell had one hit each for Cloudland.

“I’m proud of Summer for stepping in and doing the job that she did,” said head coach Kenneth Chambers. “We played pretty good in the field and got some big hits when we had to. Beating SG was definitely a big win for us.”

 

Chuckey-Doak…………………… 8 

Cloudland…………………………. 0 

Hannah Riddle took no-hitter into the fifth inning only to see freshman Martina Presnell break it up by ripping a solid single.

Riddle finished the contest with a one-hitter.

Erika Waycaster had two hits to pace the Lady Black Knights.

“We didn’t hit or field well,” said Kenneth Chambers about Cloudland’s performance. “That pretty much sums up everything in this game.”

 

Chuckey-Doak…………………… 5 

Johnson County………………… 0 

Hannah Riddle was back to her old ways against the Lady Longhorns. She took a no-hitter into the fifth, but was touched for two hits that spoiled her bid.

Abby Reece and Kristen Roark had the only two hits for the Lady Steers.

“We didn’t hit the ball or get people on base,” said Johnson County head coach Dana Smith. “The bottom line is we didn’t take care of business. Defensively we played good, but our hitting is just lacking right now.”

 

Cocke County……………………. 6 

Johnson County………………… 2 

Once again the Lady Longhorns had trouble scoring runs, falling to Cocke County by four in their second game.

Hope Nelson allowed 11 hits, but it was the four errors behind her that proved costly in this one.

Cindi Edington had a two-run double for Johnson County. Ashley Arnold chipped in going 1-2.

“We had 17 hits last week against Elizabethton, but since then we’ve not hit it well,” Dana Smith said. “We got to start scoring some runs and putting pressure on our opponent. We have to find a way to get the bats going.”
