Lady Colonels' 10-run first leads to 13-2 win over Rome

Hannah Lee had a big day for the Cass Lady Colonels as they won for the first time this season. Lee (in photo) scattered three hits and struck out seven for the pitching win. At the plate, she scored twice, drove in a pair of runs, and reached base three times. The Lady Colonels scored ten times in the bottom of the first on a pair of walks to Lee, an RBI single and a sacrifice fly by Hannah Elrod, a passed ball, a hit by pitch, a two-run single by Taylor Queen, an RBI single by Alexia Najarro, and an RBI single by Sarah Fox.

"It was nice to win, but I told the girls we still have to play better," said Cass coach Greg Hight. Taylor Queen, recently inserted into the Lady Colonels' lineup, also made a large contribution to the Cass offense by going 2-for-2. "Her bat has been pretty consistent so far," commented Hight on Queen. "She's been a pleasant surprise." Although it is only the first win of the year for Cass (1-6), it keeps the Lady Colonels in consideration for one of the sub-region's five playoff spots. The top five teams from each sub-region advance to the Region 7-AAAAA tournament. "Sequoyah is another must-win for us," noted Hight. "We have to start picking up some sub-region wins if we're going to make the tournament." Cass hosts the Lady Chiefs on Thursday.
