Busy Week Ends In Three Wins, One Loss For Cloverdale Softball

by Donna Hardy

The Cloverdale varsity softball squad recently competed in four games in three days and came away with three wins and one loss.

The Lady Clovers started things off with a double-header against the South Putnam Eagles.

In the first game, CHS took an 11-8 win, with Lauren Meek getting the win.

The Lady Clovers found strong hitting from Jessica Winders and Kelsey Helterbrand, and the offense as a whole did a good job of putting the ball into play to get the win, said Cloverdale coach Brian Knapp.

The second game did not go as well for the Lady Clovers, as they took a 7-3 loss from the Lady Eagles.

“We were unable to get that timely hit when we needed it,” Knapp said.

Next up was a contest on the road against the Owen Valley Lady Patriots. Cloverdale was able to come out on top 14-2 in five innings.

“It was a combined effort from the whole team,” explained Knapp.

Meek took the win for Cloverdale.

The week ended with a home game against the visiting Clay City Lady Eels. Cloverdale came together to take a 5-3 win, with Meek again getting the win.

Coach Knapp said his team found good hitting from Kim Winders, who earned her first high school home run with two runners on base.
