On the road, Lady Indians pick up two more SHAC victories

Peebles head coach Doug McFarland meets with his team after their 10-4 win at Fayetteville on April 4.

By Mark Carpenter – 

Picked by the coaches of the Southern Hills Athletic Conference to win the big school division, the Peebles Lady Indians softball squad continued to live up to that billing as they captured two more conference wins this week, topping both Whiteoak and Fayetteville on the road. The pair of “W’s” gave the Peebles girls a 3-1 overall record at press time.
The win over Whiteoak came on Monday, April 3 as the Lady Indians rode an 11-strikeout performance on the mound from sophomore hurler Madison Pierce to a 6-2 win over the host Lady Wildcats.
The Lady Cats actually led 2-0 after four innings as they put two runs on the board in their half of the fourth, but the Lady Indians rallied from that point, first with a single run in the fifth when Matti Nichols doubled and later came home on a Whiteoak error.
Peebles took the lead for good with a big top of the sixth, scoring four times while sending nine batters to the plate, and seeing Kylie Sims, Christian Reed, Nichols, and Hope Brown all cross the plate. The visitors tacked on one more in the top of the seventh when Jerilin Toller drew a walk and came home two batters later on another Whiteoak fielding miscue.
Now staked to a four-run lead, Pierce did her job in the bottom of the seventh, retiring the Lady Cats on three infield ground outs to seal the deal on a Peebles victory.
On Tuesday, the Lady Indians boarded the bus again for another SHAC encounter, traveling to Fayetteville to face the Lady Rockets, and with Pierce again on the mound, rolling to a 10-4 win.
Peebles drew first blood, getting a double from Pierce and RBI single from Toller in the top of the first. Fayetteville picked up one in their half of the third to tie the game at one and it stayed that way until the Lady Indians came to the plate in the top of the sixth and exploded for eight runs.
Peebles sent 11 batters to the dish, banged out seven hits, and took advantage of two Fayetteville errors to turn a tie game into a 9-1 advantage. The Lady Rockets recovered enough to string together four hits and three runs off of Pierce in their half of the sixth, but Peebles came back in the top of the seventh to hit double digits on the scoreboard when Sims singled and came home on a base hit by Josey Myers.
In the bottom of the seventh, Pierce got the first two hitters on fly balls to right field before Fayetteville loaded the bases on two walks and a single, but the Peebles pitchers got the final out on a called third strike and the Lady Indians had claimed the 10-4 win, their third of the spring.
