Lady Jaguars roll past Lady Maroons, 12-1

Vires throws one-hitter, Yantz smacks three-run homer in win

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — SOMERSET—Mikayla Vires pitched a one-hitter as the North Laurel Lady Jaguars rolled over Pulaski County, 12-1, in softball action Monday night.

The Lady Maroons lone run was unearned as Vires sparkled in the circle for the Lady Jags.

“Mikayla was great and kept them off balance,” said coach Kyle Mink.

The Lady Jaguars struck for four runs in the top of the first when Kailin Yantz tripled to left, which scored McKenzie Mills. Yantz scored on an RBI single off the bat of Vires, then Abbey Proffitt delivered a two out, two RBI single to make it 4-0.

The lead grew to 7-0 in the second when Mills reached on a bunt single, which was followed by a Kayla Huff walk. Both runners stole bases and came home on a three-run homer by Yantz to make it 7-0.

Pulaski scored its lone run in the bottom of the inning.

North added three more runs in the fourth when Yantz walked with one out and scored on an RBI double from Vires. Natasha Colwell had a two-out triple that scored Olivia Miller, then Proffitt had an RBI single to score Colwell to make it 10-1. In the sixth Miller tripled in Baxley Jackson, who was running for Vires. Miller later scored on a passed ball to make the final 12-1.

“Overall I’m very happy with how we approached tonight with having the weekend off,” Mink said. “We were really focused at the plate and had some great at bats that went deep in the counts. We still have some mental errors but we keep getting better which is all I can ask from a young team.”
