Taylor Sumner finished the night with “deuces” across the board: 2-2 batting, with 2 runs scored, 2 driven in, 2 walks and a pair of doubles.
On Friday the team continued their onslaught with a 19-1 win over Lynn Camp. Sumner and Macey Welchel hit back-to-back homers for the team in the fourth to highlight the scoring. The team combined for 17 hits, with Welchel and Emily Simpson each getting four hits. Cammi Gilreath led the team in RBI’s with 4.
On Tuesday the Lady Raiders added to the streak with a 11-1 win over Casey County to improve to 4-14 on the season.
