BHS takes sweep of Louisburg
The Baldwin High School softball team rolled over the Louisburg Wildcats on April 29 at Baldwin High. The Bulldogs won by 6-1 and 5-2 margins. A highlight may of the game may have been freshman Charley Jo Schwartz seeing her first varsity action from the mound.
Schwartz relieved senior Katie Martin after Martin pitched three innings. Her teammates were quite impressed with the youngster's performance.
"Charley Jo stepped up and pitched real well in the last couple innings," said junior catcher Mandi Daigh.
"Chuck (Schwartz) did really well pitching her first varsity game," said junior Angie Bacon.
The frosh thought fairly high of her performance as well.
"For being nervous, I thought I did all right," Schwartz said. "It was real fun after my hands stopped shaking."
Other leaders for the Bulldogs include Martin, who pitched three perfect innings in the second game before handing the reins over to Schwartz, as well as scoring two runs in the first game. Senior Kasey Pittenger pitched the first game, giving up only one run and six hits while striking out eight. Junior Kari Garrison went 2-for-3 in the first game with a pair of runs batted in.
The following Thursday the Bulldogs were scheduled to face Anderson County in Garnett, but the game was called due to weather. The Bulldogs hosted the Wellsville Eagles on Tuesday, but results were not available by press time.
