Concord Chronicle
Zoe Schultz, Cece Barrett, and Riley Adams having a good time in the dugout.

On Monday, April 29th, the Lady Jackets softball team hosted Maple Valley for a doubleheader of softball action. The Jackets not only had two huge wins, but they also had many spectacular plays that were the key factor for their two significant victories against the Lions.

The first game was an overall good team win for the Jackets, Winning it with a score of 30-1. Riley Adams was the pitcher for the game pitching a consistently solid game on the mound. With only the three innings that were played in the game, she allowed two hits and one run scored. Also, Adams struck out five batters and walked three of them with fourteen batters being faced.

Adams talks about her pitching explaining that “It felt amazing, I’ve been taking lessons, and it’s improving by a lot from last year. I have five [different] pitches now last year; I had four, so it feels great.”

 The game also contributed with many great hits from many players on the team: Danni Fritz had 1 single, Zoe Shcultz had two singles and a home run, Cece Barrett had one single and two doubles, Hannah Stimer had four doubles and one triple, and Madi Barrett had a triple as well. The total bases included were Fritz with two, Shcultz with eight, Adams with five, Metcalf with two, M. Barrett with three, C. Barrett with five, and Hannah Stimer with eleven.

Metcalf pitched only three innings like Adams, only allowing one hit and two runs. She also had four strikeouts and walked three batters, with fifteen batters faced against her. 

The Yellowjackets were also finding good contact with the ball in the second game. Zoe Schultz had two singles, Cece Barrett and Riley Adams each had one single, Jordyan Metcalf, Danni Fritz, and Madi Barrett had a double, and Hannah Stimer had a triple. An overall spectacular two-game win by the Yellowjackets. 

Jordyan Metcalf who pitched in game two reflects, “ As a team, I think we’ve done pretty well. We’ve had some good hits and everyone has had a great attitude, an overall great day.”

 The girls’ next game is today against Morenci. We wish them the best of luck in their games and continue to wish them good luck for the rest of the season. Please continue to support them as they grow as a team for the rest of the year!
