HUNTSVILLE — Scott's first four batters scored runs here Friday afternoon to set the pace, as the Lady Highlanders stepped outside the district to defeat Jellico, 14-1.
Mariah Hall, who earlier this week signed a letter of intent to join her sister, Marki, at University of the Cumberlands, led off with a base hit that she would turn into the first of four runs on the afternoon.
Anna Sexton followed with a walk, while Alex Kazee reached base with a single, and they would both score as well.
Darcy King reached base on an error by Jellico, and she also scored.
In the second inning, Hall was hit by a pitch to reach base, and later scored.
Montana Wright led off the third inning with a double, and scored, as Scott increased its lead to 6-0.
The fourth inning was a busy one for the Lady Highlanders. Hall led off with a double, then scored on a single by Sexton.
King singled, then scored — along with Sexton — on a two-run single by Rachel Storey.
With two outs, the Lady Highlanders continued to extend the inning. Aija Huff eached base with a single and wound up scoring. Tamera Dowden was hit by a pitch, and would score as well.
Jeffers reached base with a single and later scored, while Whitney Byrge reached base on an error and Hall walked.
Anna Sexton's two-run double, scoring Byrge and Hall, proved to be the final at-bat of the game, which was called after Hall crossed the plate to set the score at 14-1.
