MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Ladies scored four runs in the top of the first in game one on their way to a 7-2 win, but Centenary (6-2) allowed four unearned runs to score in a 4-2 loss to Huntingdon (4-6) for a doubleheader split in softball Saturday afternoon, February 24.

Centenary scored seven runs in the first three innings of game one. In the first, junior Payton LeBlanc walked and moved up on a wild pitch. After an infield single, a double steal allowed LeBlanc to score the first run of the game. Senior Anna Dunn then grounded back to the pitcher, but a throwing error allowed two more runs to score. A stolen base and another Hawks error allowed Dunn to cross the plate for the fourth run of the inning.

The Ladies scored a run in the second after no one was on base with two outs. In the third, an RBI single by junior Wendy Gillet and a sacrifice fly by junior Sydney Hurley scored the final runs of the ballgame for the Maroon and White.

Huntingdon scored a pair of unearned runs in the first game. In the second, Rayne Ellis hit an RBI, infield single. An RBI groundout by Katie Dewey in the fourth produced the final run of a Ladies 5-run win.
