H.S. SOFTBALL: Southern rolls at Jaguar Classic

RICHMOND — The Lady Eagles completed a very impressive weekend performance at the Jaguar Classic with a pair of wins Saturday in Nicholasville.

Madison Southern (15-6) defeated West Jessamine, 5-3, then beat Marion County 11-0 in the championship game. The Lady Eagles went 3-0 in the two-day tournament and out-scored their opponents 18-3.

“When we hit the ball and play defense, we are pretty good,” Southern coach Brian Foley said.

Against West Jessamine, Tara Bord, Amber Sparks and Alex Nash had two hits each, while Jaycee Combs doubled and Bethany Mays had a hit.

Mays also made a tremendous running catch in the outfield in the fifth inning that helped the Lady Eagles hold on to a two-run lead.

Emily Osborne started in the circle and worked into the fourth. Brooke Richards came on to pick up the save.

In the win over Marion, Southern had 13 hits. Taylor Johnson, Bord and Mays each had two hits. Combs hit a home run, Briana Lanham was 3-for-4, Kelley Freeman had a double, while Nash and Kayla Mullins each had a hit.

Bord earned the complete-game victory and had seven strikeouts.

Southern is set to return to action Monday at home against East Jessamine.

The Madison Central softball team split a pair of games Saturday during a trip to Ohio.

The Lady Indians (8-10) fell to Oak Hill (Ohio), 7-0, then came back later in the day to beat Beaver Creek (Ohio), 10-5.

In the win over Beaver Creek, Central scored two runs in the first inning, then added three more runs in the third, two more runs in the fourth and three in the sixth.
