Rivals Meet Again on Thursday

North Stanly's softball team, with a record of 10-1, competed against their rival South Stanly, who held a record of 6-2, in a highly anticipated matchup last night. North Stanly emerged victorious, securing their 7th consecutive win with a final score of 3-0.



Despite challenging weather conditions and the looming threat of rain, the game was intense and closely contested. The players maintained their focus and determination throughout the match. In the bottom of the 1st inning, the Comets scored 3 runs and then relied on pitcher Sophia Crist to maintain their lead.


Despite the wet field, freshman pitcher Sophia Crist delivered an outstanding performance, recording 9 strikeouts over 7 innings while allowing only 6 hits. Her strong pitching kept the Rowdy Bulls from scoring, contributing significantly to North Stanly's win.



Several players made key contributions to the victory. The Speight sisters, Beauna and Kylie, played crucial roles in the game. Beauna Speight went 3-for-3 with two RBI, while Kylie Speight contributed two hits and scored a run.


South Stanly’s Kinsley Tyson showcased her endurance by pitching all nine innings, a testament to her reliability on the mound. Despite conceding three earned runs from seven hits, her consistent performance shines through. In her last seven pitching appearances, she hasn't pitched fewer than five innings, demonstrating her unwavering dependability.



This win was a significant achievement for the Comets in their conference play.
