JDCC softball goes 2-0 Saturday
In their own fall play-date Saturday at the Brewton Area YMCA Sports Park and their first fall games of the season, the Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawk softball team went 2-0. JDCC was joined by five other teams in the play-date.
In Saturday’s games, JDCC opened play with a 4-1 win over the Mobile Thrillers. In their second game, JDCC defeated the Lady Astros 2-0.
Against the Mobile Thrillers, JDCC fell down 1-0 in the top of the first before adding two runs in the second inning to take a 2-1 lead.
JDCC would later add two in the fourth inning to get the win by three.
“Overall, I think we did great considering we have not had much time together as we only have been together a month,” JDCC head coach Misti Nims said. “Pitching looked really good and hopefully that will stay good through the spring. Overall, we did a good job.”
In their second game of the day, JDCC scored one run in the third inning and one in the fifth inning while holding the Lady Astros scoreless to get the 2-0 win.
Local players Audrey Hamric, a former T.R. Miller Lady Tiger and former W.S. Neal Lady Eagles Kena Ellison and Kaitin Hadaway played in the games.
In game one, Hamric had a sacrifice while Hadaway pitched three innings and struck out three. Ellison saw time running the bases as a pinch runner.
In game two, Hadaway pitched two innings and struck out two.
“I am extremely proud of where we are at right now,” Nims said. “We do have about 15 or 16 freshman this year. Everyone got to play today. They did a great job and our pitchers did a great job. We are excited about our local talent being here and playing well. We are just looking forward to the rest of the fall.”
Nims said her team won both games with two different sets of teams.
“Our potential starters and their back-ups both proved the depth that we have and I hope that we can continue to grow through the spring,” she said. “We also want to thank the Brewton YMCA for allowing us to host the tournament. We had so many people from the visiting teams comment on how nice the facilities are and how they look forward to coming back. Thanks again to Mr. Steve Dickey and his staff.”
