The DeKalb County High School Tigerette fast-pitch softball team routed the visiting Livingston Academy Lady Wildcats, 10-2, Thursday afternoon in Smithville in a District 7-AA clash. The win boosted the Tigerettes' district record to 3-0, and their overall mark to 6-1.
The Tigerettes jumped on top with three runs in the first inning, and added three more in the second. Livingston put up two runs in the top of the fourth inning, but a four-run outburst in the bottom of the inning put DeKalb County in command. The Lady Wildcats loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the fifth inning, but Tigerette pitcher, Morgan Page, struck out Chelsea Carr, and Liz Carr hit into an inning-ending double play, which kept DeKalb's lead intact. Neither team plated a run in the last two innings.
