Eaglettes win despite errors

Thursday, March 28, 2013

They didn't display their "A" game, but it was a win nonetheless as Shelbyville Central's Golden Eaglettes claimed a 4-3 win over visiting Columbia in a District 8AAA matchup on Wednesday night.

The Eaglettes (8-3, 2-1 8AAA) committed six errors in the field and left seven runners on base, including five in scoring position.

"I'm proud of how we battled despite not playing very well. We still are making entirely too many errors. I would like to see how good we could be if we didn't make so many errors," Eaglette coach Shawn DiGianfelice said.

"I know we had a lot of other things on our mind with the tragic news of the loss of a good friend (Landry Galbreth) and our prayers go put to that family."


Shelbyville collected 11 hits, led by Tiana Sanders with a pair of doubles and a single. Bailey Deason added a double and single, Chelbie Gannon smacked a double off the top of the center field fence while Baylee Cook collected three singles.

Jami Johnson got the win, allowing three hits with a pair of strikeouts and two walks.

Imani Carter's double was the top hit for the Lady Lions.

Elizabeth Shoemake went the distance for Columbia, allowing 11 hits while fanning four batters.

The Eaglettes take a week off, then return to action next Friday in the PIA Tournament in Clarksville.
