Lady Tiger Cub softball wins 2-1 at Cascade

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

CLAYTON -- The Greencastle girls' softball team picked up a win over Cascade on the road 3-1. The win moves the Tiger Cubs to 5-3 on the season.

"It was nice to play with a lead and see how we reacted and the girls didn't let up. They just didn't let up," GHS head coach Dave Keller said.

Briana Baker picked up the win, throwing a complete game with four hits, one walk and one strikeout for GHS.

The Tiger Cubs recorded a milestone on Monday evening. For the first time since Keller took over the squad, the Tiger Cubs recorded zero errors in the game.

" (It was) just a well played game defensively," Keller said.

Samantha Sillery was on fire for the Tiger Cubs, going 3-for-3 with a triple, double and single on the night. Hannah Spencer, Veronica Sawyer and Sarah Land each collected hits.

"We're happy to be 5-3," Keller admitted. "I told them let's get back in the conference and see what we can do. They took a couple of tough losses on the chin last week and we felt it would make us better. The girls really played a good ball game tonight."

With his team outscoring its opponents on their previous road trip but coming away with a losing record, Keller knows his team is close to turning the corner and stringing together a series of wins. Monday night could be the start of something.

"I'm proud of them. We're not finished. I told them on the bus that we just need to take what we did tonight and carry it on in to tomorrow night; not let up. No let up -- you come out here and ready to play and put it on them," Keller concluded.

Greencastle will host Cascade today at 4:30 p.m.
