Hornsby softball team wins Bay Rivers District tourney title
The Hawks avenged both setbacks this week en route to capturing the 2015 district tournament title. âWe dubbed it, âthe Redemption Tour,â said coach smith. âWe wanted to go back and âfix’ both of our regular season losses. It was awesome and we brought home the hardware.â
The run began Monday with an 8-3 victory over York in the semifinals. Casey Cole had two hits and drove in a run to spark Hornsby (9-2). Madalyn Morton also collected two hits, while Emily Morgan also drove in a run.
Morton dominated in the circle for the Hawks, posting 10 strikeouts in seven solid innings of work.
In the championship game, Hornsby scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning and held on for a 9-8 victory over Tabb.
The Hawks led 7-3 in the seventh inning before the Tigers erupted for four runs in their final at bat to force extra innings.
Jacquelyn Boesler had three hits and drove in a game-high four runs to lead Hornsby to the victory. Tara Rowden also posted three hits and Morgan finished with two.
Morton drove in two runs for the Hawks and Morgan added another RBI to lead a balanced attack. Morton did the job in the circle too, striking out 10 batters in nine innings for the complete game victory.
