The Lady Warriors’ varsity softball team rebounded from their opening week struggles to post four wins last week, three by shutout.

“We played much better this week,” said head coach Janet Sheets. “I am waiting for our bats to come around, but happy with the productive week.”

The Warriors opened last Wednesday with a 5-1 win at Minerva.

Carrollton trailed 1-0 going into the top of the third, but plated three runs to take control of the game.

Tanner Owens pitched five strong innings to get the win. She allowed just three hits and struck out six.

Lexi Sheets had a single, double and RBI, while Erin White doubled. Gabi Fletcher, Miranda DeGarmo each singled and drove in a run. Meneely DeGarmo, Bethany Sevek and Brooke Keane also had hits for the Warriors.

Last Thursday, the Warriors scored 10 runs in the final three innings for a 10-0 shutout of visiting Marlington.

Bethany Sevek and Owens combined for the win. Together they struck out nine and gave up seven hits.

Keane had a big night at the plate for the Warriors with a single, double, triple and two RBI. Miranda DeGarmo and Owens each had a pair of singles and two RBI, while Sheets doubled and drove in a run. Meneely DeGarmo and Laiton Carter each added a single and RBI.

Last Saturday at Claymont, the Warriors took both games of a doubled header, 5-0 and 1-0.

In game one, Owens started and got relief help from Sheets. Owens gave up three hits, struck out four and walked three. In two innings, Sheets struck out four and gave up one hit.

Sheets cracked a home run for Carrollton, while Carter added two singles and a RBI. White added a double and Owens a single and RBI.

In game two, the Warriors scored the only run of the game in the fifth inning.

Sevek and Sheets did the work on the mound for Carrollton. They gave up four hits and struck out four.

Sevek singled and drove in the only run in the game. Carter finished with a pair of singles.
