Tennessee Warehouse was able to speed away from Champion Chevrolet on Monday night to gain a convincing 12-4 win in girls coach pitch softball action at Milner Recreation Center.
Riding high from last year’s tournament championship, Tennessee Warehouse picked up right where it left off with sizzling bats, aggressive base running, and solid play in the field.
With the game tied 3-3, Tennessee Warehouse started to pull away with five runs in the bottom of the third, an inning highlighted by a Lyvia Wilson home run. Wilson finished 3-for-3 and also belted a triple. She led the team with 3 runs scored.
Ella Wells and Maddie Bryant also hit home runs for Tennessee Warehouse and each scored twice. Wells showed her glove at first base, catching everything that came her way.
Champion Chevrolet revved its engine early in the game but ran out of gas in the final two innings. Braelyn Lefevers led the team with 3 hits, including 2 doubles. She finished with 2 runs scored and also made a nice defensive play at third base.
June Cossitt and Deja Stewart scored the other two runs for Champion Chevrolet.
Tennessee Warehouse made an early season statement that it intends to be in championship contention again this year in the girls 7-10-year-old league.
