Davis and Workman dominant
West Lincoln beat Bessemer City 11-1 Tuesday night in five innings.
Katie Davis struck out six as part of a complete game one-hitter.
“She had a rough start, but then really found her rhythm and didn’t allow any more hits the rest of the way,” Lady Rebels head coach Mia Cooke said.
Sheana Black went 3-for-4 with one run. Davis went 1-for-1, reached twice via walks and scored two runs. Candi Taylor went 2-for-3 with two runs and two RBIs. Whitney Sain went 1-for-2 with two runs and two RBIs.
The Lady Rebels up their record to 5-4, 4-1 in the Southern Piedmont.
“They played very well together, our confidence is very high and we’re hoping to be in the conference race at the end,” Cooke said.
West Lincoln’s JV team won 14-0 upping their record to 6-0.
Ashley Workman struck out 14 batters in five innings to record a no-hitter.
“She’s really improved since middle school and I believe she’ll be a big asset to the team next year,” Cooke said.
