Lady Indians split games to begin busy week

It’s only Wednesday, but already East Coweta’s softball teams has experienced its share of ups and down in a busy 5-day period.

The Lady Indians split games on Monday and Tuesday, dominating Pike County 14-6 before an equally disappointing 11-3 loss to Houston County in a game played at Gordon College.

On Tuesday East Coweta pulled within a 4-3 deficit with two runs in the bottom of the fifth before Houston County reeled off seven unanswered runs. The game featured six errors by the Lady Indians, who were out-hit 13-8.

The team quickly returns to play this afternoon at home against Starr’s Mill in a non-region contest.

East Coweta was coming off an explosive 14-6 victory at Pike County on Monday where the Lady Indians jumped out to an eight-run lead in the top of the first and then padded it with four more runs in the second.

Katie Lynch and Maggie Morrow each had three of East Coweta’s 16 hits to lead the offense. Lynch went 3-for-3 with a 3-run homer that highlighted the first-inning rally. The Lady Indians’ first seven batters all reached base with consecutive hits by Mekhia Freeman, Shemiah Sanchez, Lynch, Reba Jones, Morrow and Lauren Liebe.

Lynch and Gracelyn Newmon each led East Coweta with 3 RBIs, with Newmon capping off the second inning outburst with a bases-loaded double.

Hailey Baswell and Sanchez each drove in a pair of runs for the Lady Indians.

Newmon, Sanchez and Liebe also had multi-hit games during Monday’s win.

The team was unable to carry the momentum into Tuesday while never able to gain a lead against Houston County despite a pair of hits by Kia Smith and Liebe. 

Liebe, Morrow and Baylee Schmieder each drove in runs for East Coweta.
