CCHS vs Worth Co.
The Crisp County varsity Lady Cougars picked up their first region win of the season over the Worth County Lady Rams in Sylvester by a 12-4 final score on Thursday.
“We’re excited to get a win out of our first region game,” said CCHS Head Coach Ben Robbins. “Our defense has got to play cleaner and they will.”
Rilee Duckworth got the start for the Lady Cougars in the pitcher’s circle for the region opener and she picked up the win after pitching five innings and striking out five batters while allowing six hits.
“Duckworth did her job and showed a lot of grit when we got down early in the game,” Coach Robbins said on the performance of the senior pitcher.
Offensively, Peyton Bozeman led CCHS in the contest with three hits, while Sara Ruth Raines accounted for two hits for Crisp.
Riley Blampied, Kirin Webb, Liv Taylor, Ainslee Forsythe, Macy West, and Rylee Little each had one hit for the Lady Cougars in the region victory.
“Our offense has shown good plate discipline so far this year and is starting to heat up. Any time the bottom third of your lineup has six hits it’s a good sign,” Robbins added.
The win over Worth County put the CCHS varsity team’s record at 4-2 overall on the season.
In JV action, Crisp County won against Worth earlier in the day by a final score of 6-0.
Peyton Adkins picked up the win in the pitcher’s circle for the Lady Cougars in the JV game.
