    She bats left and right handed so its pretty hard to know where she will go. Right hand she can pull it left she either going to bunt or just over the second baseman. She started off this year kinda rough but now only swinging at strikes and batter average should be north of 600.

    She is on a softball scholarship to this private school. She done this on her own. :eek: at 17 she is a J.R. with one more year. She broke her ankle first game sliding into second last year. (Same thing her team mate done to screw her knee up) So not being able to play last year she look around to make her what was out there. She knows a couple girls on the team from Church and the rest is history. She did play summer under 16 and won state for the second time.

    Juniors are on a field trip to St Louis this week. A Special bus arrived to pick-up the girls on the softball team early to make the 6:00pm game tonight.

    Juniors make it back with 30 min's to gear up. Liberty Wins 9-1(Indy team). They had two games without the JR's and was a split 1-1.

    Ahhh...Jay - keep one thing in mind. To them, prom is as important as it gets. It sounds like the girls have been working pretty hard and maybe earned a little time off for good behavior.;)

    Where in the sectional now...Rain delays right up from the paper.


    ANDERSON, Ind. — Liberty Christian’s sectional semifinal softball game with Cowan was suspended due to lightning in the top of the seventh inning Wednesday night.

    Makayla Keating doubled to lead off the first inning for Cowan and came around to score on a single by Allie McCreary to give the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead.

    Liberty tied it up in the third inning when Baylee Oren drew a leadoff walk and scored on a two-out double by Kelsey Flowers.

    Cowan regained the lead in the bottom of the sixth. Jasmine Conner led off the inning with a double and scored when the next batter, Casey Creek, singled.

    Oren singled with one out in the seventh for Liberty and advanced to second on a ground ball by Katie Maidlow, who was also safe on the play. Umpires suspended the game immediately after Maidlow’s at-bat due to lightning.

    The game will be resumed Thursday at 5 p.m. The winner will advance to the championship game, which will be held immediately after the suspended game is completed.

    Awaiting the winner is Southern Wells, which came back to defeat Wes-Del 6-5 earlier Wednesday night.

    This is now the state and at the sectional level. Baylee is on second base, Katie is on first base. They are down by one run in the bottom of the 7th with one out. Lighting stop the game tueday night
    and rain out again tonight. It will resume Friday night at 5:30. Winner plays the second game for the sectional title and winner of that moves to the regionals. (post 38 is from the Anderson paper)

    They only play 7 innings so the its all or nothing.
