Lady Pirates compete in Up the Creek

In a softball tournament loaded with some of Georgia’s largest high schools and strongest softball programs the Lady Pirates varsity team proved they are worthy competition for all challengers. The local girls began Friday night with an impressive 4-1 win over Region 2AAAAA Luella High School. The Lady Pirates leaned on the strong right arm of senior pitcher Ally Smith, who allowed only one hit in five innings of play. Saturday morning Pike faced talent laden Starr’s Mill, a AAAA school from Fayette County. The Lady Pirates took their opponent to an international tiebreaker before losing 3-1. Pike suffered its only other loss of the tournament against AAAAA powerhouse Chapel Hill. The final score was 3-2 and all three Chapel Hill runs were unearned. In a monumental pitching duel Smith battled Union Grove, another AAAAA program, to a 0-0 tie. The Lady Pirates finished the weekend with an impressive 6-0 victory over Alexander High School. Freshman pitcher Jamie Daniels threw a no-hitter to earn the win. Heather Maddox and Kyndal Deel led the weekend’s offensive output with seven and five hits respectively. Tori Bennett and Kaydee Boyt provided stellar performances behind the plate. —————————- By Jeff Deel
