The DCHS Tigerette fast-pitch softball team jumped out to a 7-0 lead after the first two innings at Smith County, Friday evening, and rolled on to an 8-4 win over the Owlettes in a District 7-AA clash.
The Owlettes did not score until the bottom of the seventh and final inning on a grand slam by Chelsea Carr, but by that time, DC owned an 8-0 lead. Victoria Bennett ripped a two-run single in the top of the first inning, then stole home to push the Tigerettes out to a 3-0 lead. DeKalb added four more runs in the second, as Kara Young reached on an error, and worked her way around to score on a passed ball. Jaylen Garrett drove home Bennett and Cynthia Woodward for two more runs, and Alex Meadows scored a run on another Smith County error, which gave the Tigerettes a 7-0 edge, midway through the second inning.
