Senior Alli Webster had another standout performance to lead the Charlestown softball team past host Clarksville on Thursday, 5-0.
Webster pitched a three-hit shutout with nine strikeouts and two walks, improving her record to 5-2. She helped herself at the plate by going 2-for-4.
“Charlestown is pretty solid. Alli is definitely one of the best pitchers in the area,” Clarksville coach Tim Hauber said.
Charlestown coach Kevin Zollman was pleased to get the Mid-Southern Conference victory.
“Anytime you can beat Coach Hauber, it’s a great win,” Webster said. “We could’ve put more hits together, but it was good to come out with a conference win.”
The Generals’ Bailey Sharp was the losing pitcher. She went the distance, giving up six hits and striking out six. Sharp and teammates Hannah Heintzman and Meghan Hall each had a single.

Veith struck out two and walked three in the victory.
“The one hit was not a hit,” Silver Creek assistant coach Scott Jennings said. “I think [Veith] should be awarded a no-hitter.”
