H.S. SOFTBALL: Lady Indians roll on Senior night

RICHMOND — The Lady Indians wanted to send their three upperclassmen — Mackenzie Humphrey, Kirstin Spillman and Chelsea Roberts — out on a high note.

And they certainly did just that on Senior Night Monday in Richmond.

MacKenzie Wilder allowed just one hit and every hitter in the lineup made significant contributions as Madison Central rolled past district rival Model (2-6), 15-0, in four innings.

The Lady Indians (9-14) scored nine times in the second inning as they picked up their first win since April 27.

“It was just good to get a win,” Humphrey said. “It’s good for our team to come together, especially this time of the year. I think that’s what we needed.”

Central lost to Model 11-6 last season, but this time the outcome was much different.

The Lady Indians left the bases loaded in the first without getting a run. In the second inning, they sent 13 batters in the plate.

“We remember last year when we lost to them in the regular season and how horrible that felt,” Humphrey said.

Spillman and Sammy Walzcyk each had two-run doubles, Sarah Arthur had a bases-loaded walk, Katie Grant had two singles and drove in two runs and Rice walked twice in the inning.

“It’s really good to get out on a team early,” Spillman said. “We got off to a fast start.”

The Lady Indians got three more runs in third, including a two-run single by Grant.

Central closed out the game in the fourth. Spillman walked and scored, Katie Brock singled and scored and Walzcyk reached on a bunt single and scored.

Spillman and Walzcyk each scored three times. Humphrey reached base twice on a walk and a fielder’s choice and Roberts had a bunt hit.

Wilder struck out eight and did not walk a batter. The Lady Patriots only hit one ball out of the infield, a single to center in the fourth by freshman Julia Durso.

The teams are set to meet again in a week. The Lady Indians and Lady Patriots are set to meet next Monday in the opening round of the 44th District Tournament at Berea College.

“The district tournament is coming up and If we play like this, we are going to win it,” Roberts said. “We’ve just got to keep it up.”

Model is set to wrap up the regular season Friday at Lee County.

Central is set to return to action today at Estill County.
