Comets jayvee softball team slugs way to win

The Halifax County High School jayvee softball team continues to score runs in bunches, finishing with 12 hits in a 11-1 win at home Monday over William Campbell High School.

Halifax County scored four runs in the first to recover from an early 1-0 deficit, and it added two runs in the second inning to take a 6-1 lead.

The Comets added single runs in the third and fourth innings, and they scored three runs in the fifth inning to end the game at that point.

Halifax pitchers Abbey Bales and Carol Fears struck out a combined five batters with no walks, the William Campell run coming in the first inning on an error and passed ball.

Faith Lester led the Comets at the plate with a two-run double and two base hits, and Madison Hailey had a base hit and two-run single that ended the game in the fifth inning.

Fears finished with a two-run double in the first inning and added an RBI in the third when she reached base on an error, and Lauren Chaney and Olivia Noblin each added RBIs when they reached base on errors.

Bales had two hits and Kennedy Dyer had an RBI single, while Anna Clowdis, Rose Spainhour and Mackenzie Lawter each had base hits. 

The Comets continue to hit the ball from the top to the bottom of the lineup, according to Head Coach Reagan Cannon.

“Everyone hit the ball really well,” she said.

“We moved players around a bit and everyone had a great game defensively. 

“Abbey Bales and Carol Fears got to work on the mound, and both girls did a good job.”
