Lady Jays sweep Chargers

The Sabetha Lady Jays softball squad opened up the 2024 season by sweeping a doubleheader on their home field from the Horton Chargers on Friday, March 22. The Lady Jays did not have to play more than three innings in either game, as their offense erupted for 22 hits and 33 runs in the two contests. The pitching and defense was just as dominating, as the Jays only allowed one hit and no runs in the two games.

Game One

Senior Alexia Hayden took the mound for the Lady Jays in the first game and pitched three innings of one-hit softball, allowing no runs with one walk and four strikeouts.

Hayden also went two for two at the plate with one RBI and one walk to lead the Jay offense. Junior first baseman Erin Boltz led the way also by going two for two at the plate with two RBIs. Sophomore second baseman Kiera Keim knocked in three runs in the game from her lead-off position as the Lady Jays jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one inning and never looked back, winning the contest 15-0 after three innings.

Game Two

In the nightcap, the Lady Jays exploded for 15 runs in the first inning and added three more in the bottom of the second to win the game, 18-0. Junior center fielder Halley Mitchell and sophomore catcher Jyllian Stapleton went two for three at the plate, with three RBIs and two runs scored each to lead the attack.

Sophomore Chloe Detweiler took the mound for the Lady Jays and pitched three innings of no-hit softball, allowing no runs with three walks and four strikeouts.
