JV Girls Troup 049The 2013 JV Lady Braves (Front L-R): Aspen Barker, Alyssa Cosper, Anna Sims, Ally Harris (Back L-R): Head Coach Ryan Duffey, Shealynn Sumner, Brittany Sims, Hannah Sanders, Hattie Yarbrough, Sarah Schofield, Asst. Coach Kelly Hadley

(Franklin) — The Lady Braves junior varsity softball squad flexed its proverbial muscle Tuesday afternoon at home knocking off the Troup Tigers 15-0 and 15-0 in a season opening doubleheader at Heard High School.

Freshman pitcher Hattie Yarbrough, a summer transfer from Holy Ground, led the way on the mound and the bats were hot with both games being called by the 15 run mercy rule in the third inning. In a show of sportsmanship in game two, the Lady Braves purposely made outs on the base paths.

Shealynn Sumner provided a big part of the offense in game two with a double, a single, and four RBI’s.

New head Coach Ryan Duffey is pleased with his team’s hot start. “Good start to the season today,” said Duffey. “The girls came out and made the adjustments we needed to. We were able to work on some of the same things we have been with the varsity team including keeping our hands back on the off-speed pitches. Hattie threw well from the mound and so did Sarah Schofield.”

The team returns to action next Monday at home versus Bowdon in another doubleheader.
