Belmont MS downed in County Title Quest

October 31, 2007 at 9:02 am 1 comment


The Belmont Wildcats softball played 5 and-a-half innings of very good softball, then the wheels fell off, losing to Chavis 9-3 in the County Championship game yesterday.

 A great crowd was on hand to view the MS championship game at Dwight Frady Field in East Belmont. Special thanks to the fans, who lined the field and outfield fence, for their support for this game and the season.

Chavis, a perennial softball power, came loaded for bear in this game. After losing in the regular season to Belmont 9-7, they planned to play aggressively and with extra focus.

The game was also a battle between Leah Sturgill of Chavis and Emily Tucker of Belmont. 

Sturgill won the pitching battle, striking out 7 seven players and holding Belmont scoreless for 3 consecutive innings at one stretch. 

Tucker pitched well overall, and contributed offensively recording two runs, one on an inside-the-park dinger.

The game was fun to watch. South Point will have a good group of girls when this squad ages into the high school program. The Gazette had a short video and article in today’s paper.

Congratulations Wildcats on another fine season !
