WHITE HALL — Since White Hall has not played softball since March 15 because of spring break, coach Terri Smith was maybe expecting a slow start.

Whatever rust the Lady Bulldogs had to shake was taken care of early as they scored two runs in the first inning in the first of two games against DeWitt. White Hall went on to win 6-0 and then took the second game 8-2 in four innings on Monday.

“I will take that any day,” Smith said of the two wins.

White Hall (8-1) only trailed for one out of the 11 innings, and that was a 1-0 lead by DeWitt after the top of the first in the second game. The Lady Bulldogs later took the lead with a three-run first inning.

In the first game Rachel Box drove in Karia Hall for the first run of the game, and Box later came around to score on an error in the opening inning.

Even though White Hall got off to a 2-0 start, the Lady Bulldogs did not score again until the fifth inning and were held to four hits.

“They were a little rusty, but they were just overanxious to hit because we haven’t played since the Thursday before spring break,” Smith said.

The Lady Bulldogs were never in real danger of losing the lead, though, as pitcher Sydnee Clark did not allow a hit until the fourth inning. By the end of the game, Clark gave up just two hits and walked only one batter.

“She is very good and she’s pretty consistent,” Smith said of Clark’s performance.

Clark added six strikeouts in the game and sat down two of the first three batters of the game.

“I loved the strike zone,” she said. “It’s nice to have an umpire to give you a lot. It helps with the fielding behind me, and I felt really, really good.”

White Hall scored four runs in the fifth inning. Kayla Reap had a two-run triple, Haley Baugh hit an RBI single and another run scored on a wild pitch.

Hall finished 1 for 3 with two runs scored, Box was 2 for 4 with a run and an RBI and Reap was 1 for 1 with two RBIs.

DeWitt scored a run in the first inning of the second game before Reap scored on a wild pitch and Box hit a two-run home run for the 3-1 lead.

Emily Law scored on a wild pitch n the second inning for a 4-1 lead and the Lady Bulldogs added four more in the third inning. Clark, Box and Law each had one RBI in the third and Clark scored on a wild pitch.

White Hall had six hits in the three innings, one less than it had in the first game.

“I think we just had our head into it more,” Clark said. “We knew we were going to hit and redeem ourselves from the other game.”

DeWitt did get a run in the fourth, but that is all Hall would allow in the inning to end the game. Hall, who started the second game, got the first eight outs of the game on strikeouts. She ended with nine strikeouts, four hits and four walks.

“That’s impressive,” Smith said. “She did good and she is young. She is only in ninth grade.”

Reap and Clark each scored two runs and Clark added an RBI. Box finished with three RBIs and a run scored and Law scored and drove in a run.
