RCHS recap on the diamond
In April 21 Issue

Baseball: Coach David Rexroat’s Laker baseball team is back to their winning ways after a district win over Metcalfe County last week and a big 17-10 thumping of Campbellsville Monday night in Taylor County.

These victories come on the heels of the Lakers falling at home to the same Campbellsville team last Wednesday.

Alex Turner picked up the win over the Hornets while Caleb Russell earned the victory Monday against the Eagles. Laker Evan Selby hit a grand slam Monday to give the Lakers a big advantage the Eagles were never able to overcome. The Lakers are now 7-4 on the year and host Clinton County at 5 p.m. Thursday.


Softball: The Russell County Lady Lakers fell in their first district game to Metcalfe County, 5-4, in extra innings last Thursday.

"Jamie and I had high expectations with it being our first official district game," said Lady Laker softball coach Stephanie McGowan. "To finish out the day losing 4-5 in extra innings, it was a heartbreaker. There were some things that went right and some things that went wrong."

Most impressive was the squeeze play carried out by 7th grader Brittany Simpson.

"We had been working on the concept of the squeeze all season to get the girls ready for when we carried it out in a game situation," McGowan said. "Brittany did a perfect job laying a bunt down to the right side to score senior Sky Covarrubias."

Then there were other things that the team has worked on every day in practice that didn't happen in the game the way the coaches wanted to see it.

"Getting rid of the ball, thinking ahead to the next play … some base running," she said. "Things that should be second nature by now. Things that better be fixed by the next game."

McGowan said the Lady Hornets did a great job of staying in the game and getting key hits that they needed when they needed to get them.

"I just feel like we could have done better on our end," she said. "Jamie and I were disappointed but all we can do now is move on to the next game and build on the things we did right and fix the things we did wrong. New day, new game."

In the game Cheyenne Simpson went 2-4, Baylee Hadley was 2-4 with an RBI , Brittany Simpson was 1-3 with 2 RBIs and Natalie Loy was 1 for 3 with a triple.
