Harrison pulls away from softball rival Lafayette Jeff

April 13, 2014
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Kalyn Revord limited Lafayette Jeff to two hits in her first pitching performance of the season and Kaitlyn Carnahan went 3-for-3 at the plate as Harrison earned an impressive 11-1, five-inning victory over visiting Lafayette Jeff.

Two of undefeated Harrison’s three victories this season have come against potential sectional foes in Lafayette Jeff and Logansport. Jeff falls to 1-1 after beating McCutcheon earlier this week.

“The season started late and we’ve probably only been outside five times this season,” Harrison coach Dick Mitchell said. “So we’re just learning how to play the game. Starting out 3-0 is awesome. We always want to be the best at the end of the year, but we’re really rolling right now and the kids are having a great time.”

It was Lafayette Jeff, though, that scored first off Revord. Bailey Ladd walked, stole second and scored on a throwing error by Shelby Kyle at third base on a Tori Crouch grounder.

Crouch was thrown out at second by Carnahan, wasting a Zoee Anderson double that followed.

The top of the first proved to be the proverbial wake-up call for Harrison, as the Raiders pounded out seven runs over the first two innings against Jeff sophomore starter Kristin Landes.

Carnahan’s double down the left field line scored Hunter Bridge and Maggie Shandrick, who Landes hit with pitches to open the Raiders’ half of the first inning. Jordan Hudson, running for Carnahan, scored when Shailen Johnson reached on an error and gave Harrison a 3-1 lead.

“We knew we had to jump on it right then,” Carnahan said about Harrison coming back from the early deficit. “Right after the inning, I said we need to get together and we’ve got to do it. Once we got pumped up, I saw people going up to the plate with confidence and that we were going to hit and score.”

Bridge, Shandrick, Carnahan and Kaitlyn Moody all strung together consecutive RBI at-bats in the second inning, highlighted by Carnahan’s triple to right center, as Harrison built a 7-1 lead.

Revord found her groove, striking out four over the last four innings while surrendering one hit. Crouch beat out an infield single and Anderson reached on an error in the third inning, but Revord got Maegan Rusk to fly out to right field.

“We had a couple of opportunities early and didn’t get the hits that might have changed the momentum of the game,” Jeff coach Lamar Simmons said. “But give them credit. They hit the ball. They’re a good hitting team.”

Revord closed out her first outing by retiring the last seven Bronchos in a row.

“I was really nervous in the first inning,” Revord said. “I hadn’t done very well against Jeff in the past, but my teammates picked me up and I was able to finish the game a lot better than I started. This team has nothing but high hopes and high energy.”

Simmons said he still has a lot of confidence in Landes, who was making only her second varsity start. He said the game will be a learning experience for her.

“That’s what it’s all about, getting out there every day and being mentally tough, and if certain pitches aren’t working, you can get batters out with other pitches,” Simmons said. “For her, it’s just a process.”
