The Lady War Hawk varsity softball team improved to 3-0 in Region 4-AA following a 5-4 win over Thomas Heyward last Tuesday April 4. Colleton Prep lost a non-region game versus Williamsburg Academy Thursday to head into spring break 14-2 overall.
Against Thomas Heyward, Anne Garrett Carter earned the complete game win in seven innings of work. Carter allowed no earned runs on two hits, issuing no walks and striking out 11 of the 28 batters faced.
Colleton Prep out hit the Lady Rebels, recording nine hits to the Rebels’ two. Penelope Tuten led Colleton Prep at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a double and scoring twice. Elizabeth Anne Dean was 2-for-3 with an RBI and Langley Harter was 2-for-4. Heather Davis was 1-for-3 with a triple and scored once. Weslin Jones and Carter also recorded hits in the game.
“Anne Garrett had a terrific performance in the circle for CPA,” said Assistant Coach Jeremy Ware. “We jumped out to an early lead in the game, but uncharacteristic errors and leaving 11 base runners stranded allowed Thomas Heyward to stay in the game. Thankfully, timely hitting kept us ahead and gave us the win. We will continue to work on the little things. We are really proud of these young ladies. It is our first year in 2A and we are excited to be leading the region at this time of the season.”
In a 13-5 loss to Williamsburg Academy on Thursday April 6, CPA fell behind early. After three innings, the Lady Hawks trailed 5-0. They scored three runs in the fourth and two in the sixth, but were outpaced by the Stallions. Haley Wilson started in the circle and lasted two innings before being relieved by Meredith Ware. Wilson allowed three earned runs on three hit, issuing two walks and striking out two. Ware allowed five earned runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out two.
CPA had five hits in the game. Haley Wilson was 1-for-3 with a 3-RBI homerun in the top of the fourth inning. Weslin Jones, Penelope Tuten, Ware and Brittany Brownlee had hits in the game.
The Lady Hawks will face Robert E. Lee, Dorchester Academy and Thomas Heyward following spring break.
