JEFFERSON CITY — Three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings helped lift Scott to a 9-4 win over Campbell County at Carson-Newman University here Saturday afternoon.
Playing at the C-N Softball Complex, Scott got the scoring started in the first inning, when Whitney Byrge scored on a two-out RBI triple by Marki Hall.
The Lady Highlanders managed just one hit and left a runner stranded in the second, but added two runs to the scoreboard in the third. Playing on the field where her aunt — Carson-Newman softball coach Vicki Kazee-Hollifield — has achieved overwhelming success, Scott’s Alex Kazee scored a run in the bottom of the third, while Byrge added another run as well.
Kazee added an RBI double — scoring Rachel Storey — in the fourth inning, while later scoring a run on an RBI by Byrge. Montana Wright also scored a run in the fourth on an RBI by Chelsey Kidd.
Scott completed its scoring in the fifth inning, with runs by Hall, Anna Sexton and Darsey King.
Mariah Hall reached base with a two-out triple in the bottom of the sixth, but Campbell County would force the third out on the next at-bat.
