Bees, Huskies roll to wins: PHOTOS

FAIRMONT — East Fairmont’s softball team was on the better end of the cross-town rivalry with Fairmont Senior on Thursday in Rivesville, rolling past the Bears for a 13-1, six-inning victory.

The win moved the Bees to 18-7 overall and helped them sweep the season series with FSHS.

Kayla Summers had a great day at the plate for the Bees — the senior first baseman finished 3 for 4, all of them doubles, and knocked in four runs while scoring three.

East’s Jasmin Johnson was 2 for 4 with a double, two RBIs and scored twice; Mikaya Moore was 2 for 4 with a run and Ashley Martin was 2 for 3 with one RBI.

In addition, Cassidy Toothman went 1 for 2 with three walks, an RBI and scored a pair and Leeanna Downey was 1 for 2 with one RBI. Tori Postlewait walked three times and scored a run, while Hannah Ferrell walked and scored a run

As a team, the Bees drew 10 walks on the evening.

Tori Postlewait got the win in the circle. The junior threw all six innings, giving up one run on three hits while adding six strikeouts.

Brittany Morgan paced the Bears’ offense with a single.

East hosts RCB today, while Fairmont Senior will entertain Liberty.

Huskies win in four

North Marion’s softball team won again, nabbing an 11-1 victory over Philip Barbour in four innings.

Mariah Sides paced the Huskies with two hits, one a double, and drove in three runs. Danielle Fluharty and Morgan Clyde each added two hits.

Amanda Sigley and Shasta Pyles each singled in the win, North’s third in a row.

Chelsi Latocha got the pitching win. The junior went all four, struck out seven, walked one and allowed just two hits

North, now 17-8 and 8-2 in Big 10 play, will play three games today in the Clay-Battelle tournament. The Huskies take on the host Cee-Bees at 4:30 p.m., and will follow with games versus Buffalo and Morgantown.

  • University hands Huskies first loss; East edges Elkins

    The mercy rule has been a familiar part of North Marion’s softball season.
    Through the first seven games, the Huskies regularly pounded their opponents with stingy defense, sharp pitching and timely hitting. Rarely did a game go all seven innings for the previously undefeated team.
