E-GALS PICK UP TWO WINS at STATE
June 6, 2014By Jon Boultinghouse of Apollo High School
The E-Gal softball team has won its first 2 games of the state tournament. Last night (Thursday, June 5th) the E-Gals battled the ladies from Green County in a 3-2 nailbiting victory. Katelyn Knott picked up the victory on the mound. Savanna Williams started off rallies in the 4th and 6th innings with singles and scored 2 runs to lead the E-Gal offensive attack.
Apollo picked up its second victory of the state tournament today (Friday, June 6) with a 12-2 victory against Highlands in 5 innings. With the victory, the E-Gals remain undefeated and are in the winners bracket of this double elimination tournament. The E-Gals offense flexed its muscle by hitting 5 HOME RUNS in this ball game (Katelyn Knott hit 2 homeruns, Savanna Williams 1, Sarah Smith 1, and Ashley Adkisson 1)
Autumn Grady was solid on the mound against Highland picking up the pitching victory. The only runs allowed were 2 solo home runs in the 1st and 4th innings by the Highland's catcher.
So. .. . the E-Gals need our support. They will face off TODAY (Friday, June 6) against a really tough team . . . the Cardinals from Scott County. The games are here in Owensboro at Jack C. Fisher Park. We play at 3:00 pm at the BROWN FIELD. Cost of admission is $10 for just today or an armband for $15 that is valid for admission for today and tomorrow.
An Apollo victory means that the E-Gals are in the final 4 and play at 9:00 am tomorrow.
Since this is a double elimination tournament, a loss would mean the E-Gals would have to play another game today at 7:00 pm in order to remain in the tournament.
So please, come on out and support the ladies of Apollo in the “Battle of the Birds”. . . E-Gals vs. the Cardinals. . . at 3:00 pm.
