Not a lot has changed in the last year as far as the status of the Midway Lady Green Waves and the Grace Christian Lady Rams softball match-up.
Midway hammered the Lady Rams in their inaugural season last spring and they did it again Monday afternoon winning a double header, 28-0 and 26-0.
Midway had not played in almost 10 days and didn’t have much practice time with all the rain last week. Coaches Craig Hutchinson and Robbie Viar were grateful to be able to get the Grace games in because they did needed a workout before they take on district and county rival Rockwood twice this week.
Midway visited Rockwood Tuesday before hosting the Lady Tigers Thursday.
Even with the long layoff, Midway didn’t waste much time plowing through the Lady Rams. All 13 Lady Waves managed to score at least one run in the two games. Both were cut short because of the mercy rule applied.
In the first game Midway was actually the visiting team and the game lasted only three innings as the Lady Waves scored 11, nine, and eight runs in their three at bats.
In the second game, Midway scored all 26 runs in the bottom of the first inning and the game ended after Grace batted in the top of the second.
Three Midway pitchers fired a no-hitter through the five innings pitched. Usual starting pitcher Hannah Colyer worked the first inning of the first game and struck out two. Freshman Taylor Narramore pitched the final two innings and allowed three walks while striking out four.
Michelle Walden pitched the second game and walked one while striking out three.
Narramore was the leading run scorer in the first game, scoring five runs with a pair of hits. Alex Coffman was second with four runs scored and a hit. Haley Parks scored three runs and had a hit.
Scoring two runs each in the first game were Lacey Davidson with a hit, Kati Alexander with a double, Walden with a hit, Krystal Rue, Anisley Presswood and Brianne Reynolds. Scoring a run each were Colyer, Paige Moree, Erica McMurray and Ashley Alexander.
The 26-run first inning in the second game saw Coffman, Davidson, Colyer and Kati Alexander scoring four runs each in the inning. Walden, Moree, Parks, Rue and Narramore scored two runs each.
Parks and Davidson had big hits in the inning with a triple and a double, respectively.
Midway improved to 7-2 overall and 2-0 in District 3-A with the wins.
