PIEDMONT – Shelby Wood went 3-for-4 with four RBIs and the heart of White Plains’ lineup went 7-for-12 with seven RBIs as the seventh-ranked 4A Lady Wildcats topped Piedmont 8-3 Thursday.

White Plains broke a scoreless tie on Ashlyn Hinton’s RBI single in the fourth, then broke it open with five runs in the fifth. Shelby Wood singled home the first two runs. Carley Wood and Hinton also drove home runs in the inning; they both were 2-for-4 in the game.

The Lady Wildcats (29-8) opened an 8-0 lead before Piedmont scored three in the bottom of the sixth on Kenzie Tolbert’s RBI single and Amber Raney’s two-run single.

Kayleigh Williams went 3-for-4 with two doubles and Hannah Hulsizer and Tolbert had two hits apiece for Piedmont (21-12-1).

Pleasant Valley 7, Spring Garden 1: Alisa St. John and Savannah Williams both had two hits and an RBI and Olivia Jones scattered seven hits in a complete-game win at Jacksonville State.

Lindsey Pritchett drove in two runs for the fifth-ranked 3A Lady Raiders (22-18-1), while Kara Perry had a double and Atleigh Brannon drove in a run.

Alexandria 8, Handley 2: Emmah Rolfe gave up six hits and struck out six and sisters Maggie and Ashley Phillips both drove in a pair of runs.

The third-ranked 5A Lady Cubs (30-10-2) scored all their runs in the first three innings. They broke it open with a six-run second. Jessica Shaw, Mattie Wade and Ashley Phillips had two hits apiece in the game.

Rolfe retired the first seven batters she faced. Handley loaded the bases against her with two singles and a walk with one out in the third, but the seventh-grader got out of it with a double play. The two runs she allowed in the sixth inning were unearned.

Coosa Christian 11, Ohatchee 9: Alaina Hampton hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth that proved to be the difference for Coosa Christian. Autumn Widgeon hit a three-run homer in the fifth to get the Lady Indians within 9-6. The Tribe got three in the seventh to make it close.

Lincoln 13, Cleburne County 3: The fifth-ranked 5A Lady Bears (29-12) hit three home runs off Kiara Akles to complete an undefeated area schedule and extend their winning streak to six games.

Victoria Mitchell went 2-for-3 with a grand slam and seven RBIs. Carlee Mullinax had a three-run homer, double and four RBIs. Kamryn Beasley hit a solo homer. Savannah Sands pitched a complete game, giving up seven hits and striking out four.

The Lady Bears return to action Friday in the Hoover tournament where they’ll play three ranked team in pool play. In their upcoming area tournament May 1, they’ll play fourth-seeded Talladega at 1 p.m. after Cleburne County (23-11) and Clay Central play at 11 a.m.


Donoho 4, Faith Christian 1: County tournament MVP Noah Wright scored a first-half goal and had two assists as the Falcons (11-3-1) steam towards a big close with Sacred Heart.

Wright and Hinton Owsley scored in the first half as the Falcons opened a 2-0 lead. Mac Love and Blake Steed scored in the second half and Faith’s Luke Simms slipped a turnover past Donoho keeper Ross Hagan for the final margin.

The Falcons play three matches next week, two against Sacred Heart. One win in those matches with the Cardinals locks them into the playoffs.

“We are glad to get the win (Thursday) and are looking forward to Sacred Heart this week,” Donoho coach Matthew Wright said.


Cole, Cone go low: Glencoe’s Lauren Cole and Hope Cone of team winner Westbrook Christian shot 6-over-par 42s to share medalist honors in a six-team match on the Heartbreaker course at Silver Lakes. Westbrook posted 134 as a team with three scores in the 40s and won handily over Southside.
