Trousdale County’s Lady Jackets played twice last week and split their games, with the loss coming in a key district matchup.
The Lady Jackets (5-2, 4-1 6-A) lost 6-3 at Gordonsville on April 4 after having early leads of 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2. In the bottom of the seventh, Gordonsville tied the game before hitting a three-run walkoff home run with two outs.
“We were in position to beat the 2018 district champions heading into the last inning with a lead, but just didn’t close it out,” said coach Blake Satterfield. “It’s a tough loss and one that’s hard to come back from.
“Very draining both mentally and physically. It’s game like these though that show you where you really are.”
Sophomore Kirsten Eversole had her best game since returning from injury as she went 2-for-3, including her first career home run. Classmate Makayla Crook added her first homer of the season, while sophomores Erin Hix and Hannah Hailey had the other two hits for the Lady Jackets.
The result leaves Trousdale County, Gordonsville, Red Boiling Springs and Monterey each with one district loss.
On April 2, sophomore Rebecca Chapman hit her first career home run and the Lady Jackets rallied from behind to win 18-6 over visiting Mt. Juliet Christian. The Lady Jackets trailed 4-1 in the third inning before the bats came to life.
Senior Camyron Hurd had three hits and scored three runs. Rebecca Capman had two hits as did freshman Elyssa Chapman, Eversole, Crook and sophomore Faith Winter. Hailey and Sierra Stafford also had hits for TCHS.
Hailey picked up the win on the mound, adding seven strikeouts to her season total.
The Lady Jackets are scheduled to host Monterey for Senior Night on Monday at 5:30 p.m.
