April 23, 2014Columbus North High School
ST. LEON, Ind. -- Sophomore Tommi Stowers stroked a run-scoring double in the first inning Wednesday (April 23), helping the Columbus North softball team post a 5-0 victory at East Central.
Stowers finished 3-for-4 with two doubles and senior Grayson Harney pitched a four-hitter for the Bull Dogs, who added two more runs in the fifth and one more in the seventh to improve to 6-5.
Senior Denisa Brooks added two hits and scored three times for CN, while sophomore Katie Prall went 2-for-4 with one run and one RBI. Sophomores Christine Bombardiere and Makayla Caudill each added one hit, while junior Kelsay Lucas had two RBIs.
Brooks and Bombardiere each reached base in the first, setting the stage for Stowers' first double. Brooks and Prall got on in the fifth, Lucas driving in one run and Stowers another with her second double.
CN scored once more in the seventh, Brooks tripling and Prall singling her home.
Harney pitched out of a fourth-inning jam to preserve her shutout. A fine defensive play by Stowers notched the first out. Then with two runners on base, Harney enduced two ground outs to escape the threat.
At the JV level, the Bull Dogs and Trojans were tied at 8-8 when the game was stopped because of darkness.
