Columbus North softball splits in Brown County Invitational
April 22, 2014Columbus North High School
NASHVILLE, Ind. -- Sophomore Tommi Stowers went 3-for-3 with a double and triple on Saturday (April 19), helping the Columbus North softball team to a 6-3 victory over Brownstown Central in the third-place game of the Brown County Invitational.
One of Stowers' hits actually was a shot over the fence, but a runner ahead of her was called out for missing home plate. That was the third out of the inning, so Stowers was credited with a triple.
Senior Denisa Brooks went 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI, while sophomore Christine Bombardiere was 2-for-2 with a double for the Bull Dogs (4-4). Sophomore Katie Prall added a triple, while senior Shannah Hercamp had a double and two RBIs and junior Kelsay Lucas had two RBIs.
Bombardiere pitched five innings for the win, while senior Grayson Harney hurled the final two for a save.
In the opener, Lucas and Stowers stroked back-to-back doubles for a run in the fourth inning, but that was the Bull Dogs' only run in a 6-1 loss to Hauser.
The Jets used three runs in the third, two in the fourth and one in the sixth to prevail.
At the JV level, Columbus North split a doubleheader at home against Martinsville. The Bull Dogs defeated the Artesians 9-7 in the opener as junior Alex Luse, freshman Madisyn Prince and junior Allie Carr each had two hits and two RBIs. Martinsville won the second game 14-3 in five innings. Sophomore Lillie Petro had two hits, and freshman Kaitlyn Panning had two RBIs for CN.
