EXCEL 11, KINGS RIDGE 0
Excel Christian Academy sophomore pitcher Taylor Gibson tossed a five-inning, complete game Thursday and went 3-for-4 at the plate to lead the Lady Eagles to an 11-0 region win at Kings Ridge. Lady Eagles’ coach Eric Harris was pleased with Gibson’s performance. “That was one of her best outings of the year,” noted Harris. “She pitched really well and the girls played good defense behind her.” The victory improved ECA to 5-6 overall and 4-2 in Region 6-A.
“We’ve got a little momentum going right now,” said Harris. “The two games we have at home Saturday are really important.”
In addition to Gibson’s performance, the Lady Eagles got plenty of offensive production. Rachel Parrott went 3-for-3, Lindsay Mauldin and Callie Beth Scheff were both 2-for-3, and Hannah Cauthen and Brighton McCollum each addded a hit. Excel hosts Walker in a region doubleheader Saturday at 10am.
