The 2016 Trion High School Softball Lady Dogs took out Darlington with help from Shelby Carlock with a score of 5-0. Carlock went 2-2 over seven innings on Tuesday. Whitney Shepherd kept the Tigers off the scoreboard for the seven innings she was on the mound. She pitched a shutout, allowing no runs and striking out four. “Whitney has really been progressing and working at getting better each time out. She pitched well and gave her team a chance to win,” said Head Coach Jason Lanham.
The Lady Dogs went up for good in the fifth, scoring four runs on a two-run double by Shelby Carlock and a sacrifice fly by Graci Burns. “The team as a whole did a great job of situational hitting in the 5th to produce a big four run inning,” said Lanham.
The Lady Dogs are currently 4-0 and play today at Excel Christian Academy.
