Softball Team Drops Decision To Rogersville Here Thursday

Coach Rex Sawyer keeps an eye on the play as junior Macey Phillips slides in ahead of the throw at third base in the Rogersville game here last week.

Rogersville erupted for 19 runs in the top of the second inning here last Thursday afternoon and defeated the Softball Lady Bears 20-5 in three innings.
The humiliating second inning – which was totally uncharacteristic for this year’s Lady Bears team – saw defensive errors and mental mistakes on the part of Ava and solid line drive hits and even an inside-the-park home run by Rogersville.

Kiaunna Snow makes a play at shortstop for the Lady Bears against Rogersville last Thursday.

Ava shortstop Kiaunna Snow was 1-for-3 in the abbreviated game with a run scored. Ava’s junior first baseman Taylor George was 1-for-2 with two RBIs.
Second baseman Ashton Bewley had an RBI and a run scored and designated player Liz Jelowdar was 1-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI.

Ava’s catcher Serenity Bristol waits for the throw as a Rogersville player slides in safe at home.

Substitute runners Serena Stewart and Shantel Nagel each scored runs for Ava.
