H.S. ROUNDUP: Dragons yield one run in winning NA Invitational

Silver Creek defeats Bulldogs, Trinity Lutheran

NEW ALBANY — The Silver Creek softball team allowed one combined run in both of its games on Saturday to win the New Albany Invitational at Prosser Field. The Dragons defeated the host Bulldogs in the tournament opener, 2-0. They then thumped Trinity Lutheran to go 2-0 in the tournament, 10-1. This year’s tournament had a round-robin format.

Silver Creek’s Shayla Cravens pitched a four-hit shutout in the victory over New Albany. She struck out 11 and walked none.

Silver Creek’s Casie Toby and Tiphany Harper each went 2-for-3.

Bulldog freshman Hannah Morton was the losing pitcher. She went the distance, surrendering two earned runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and no walks.

Against Trinity Lutheran, Dragons’ starting pitcher Audrey Jolissaint yielded one hit in getting the complete-game victory. The one run Jolissaint gave up was earned, as she fanned eight and walked none.

Silver Creek’s Sydney Ledwedge and Brooke Barnett each went 2-for-3, while teammates McKenzie Bush and Heather Knight both were 2-for-4. Ledwedge had a double and a triple, while Barnett smacked a triple.

“This is a good tournament for us,” Dragons’ assistant coach Terry Purlee said. “Playing against New Albany is a challenge for us. Anytime you can win over a Class 4A school, it’s always good.”

The Bulldogs ended up 1-1 on the day with an 11-1 triumph over Trinity Lutheran in five innings.

Hannah Veit was the only New Albany player to have a multihit game, going 2-for-4 with five RBIs.

Bulldog freshman McKenzie Gill got the victory on the mound. She tossed all five frames, allowing one earned run on three hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

Silver Creek (8-3) and New Albany (5-4) will both be on the road on Monday. The Dragons will visit Austin, while the Bulldogs will face Charlestown.
