The Lady Cougars pounced into the season opener with an 11-strikeout one-hit performance from Brooke Miller and continued attacking from the plate for an 11-0 victory over Southern Garrett last Tuesday.
“That is very exciting to start the season with a win,” East Hardy coach Ashley Dove remarked.
“The girls came out ready to play and I couldn’t be more proud of them. They hit the ball and Brooke Miller was outstanding on the mound. She had 11 strikeouts and only one hit. The girls helped her out scoring runs and they just did awesome.”
Miller started the game by fanning the first three Lady Rams to come to the plate.
East Hardy leadoff batter Skye Metzer smacked a single into left field and stole second base.
