HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Floyd Central blanks Charlestown at home, 7-0

Highlanders’ Cato strikes out 12 in varsity debut

FLOYDS KNOBS — The Floyd Central softball team upped its record to 2-0 on Thursday with a 7-0 home victory over Charlestown.

In her first varsity start of her high school career, sophomore Caroline Cato pitched a three-hit, complete-game shutout to get the victory for the Highlanders. Cato struck out 12 Pirates and walked none.

Floyd Central’s Kate Kaiser and Morgan Harper each went 2-for-2. Kaiser had two RBIs, a triple and a run scored, while Harper scored twice.

“The team played well within themselves,” Highlanders’ head coach Joe Witten said. “We put the pressure on Charlestown. When your pitcher doesn’t walk anybody, you have a good chance to win.”

Alyssa Price led the Charlestown bats, going 2-for-3 with a double.

Pirates’ pitcher Alli Webster went the distance as she picked up the loss in Charlestown’s season opener. Webster gave up seven runs (four earned) on four hits, walking six and striking out five.

Floyd Central will play in the Bedford North Lawrence Tournament starting today. The Highlanders face Edgewood in their first pool-play game today. On Saturday, they will face Eastern Greene in their second pool game, followed by a game in either the championship or consolation bracket.

Charlestown will visit West Washington on Wednesday.

• Jeffersonville turns back Lanesville: Jeffersonville scored two runs in the first, another in the second and held on for a 3-1 home victory over Lanesville on Wednesday.

“For our first game, it was nice to get a win under our belt,” Jeffersonville coach Jodi Bradley said. “We did a lot of things right, but there are still some things we need to improve on.”

Kayla Poppe got the win for Jeffersonville, going two innings, striking out four and giving up just one unearned run. Teammate Kayleigh Thomas struck out three in two innings of relief, while the Red Devils’ Emily Gray went three innings and struck out six.

Offensively, Marley Edwards led the Jeffersonville effort with a 2-for-4 day at the plate that included a double and a run scored. Also for the Red Devils, Emma Coons swatted another double and scored another run, while Tori Flaten was 2-for-3 with another two-bagger.

Jeffersonville hosts Tri-County (Mich.) at 5 p.m. today.
