South Laurel downs Pulaski County, 7-2

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — South Laurel sophomore Clark Wyatt has had quite a week for the Lady Cardinals. She delivered her first varsity homer over the weekend, and added another win to her resume Monday by pitching her team past Pulaski County, 7-2.

Wyatt scattered four hits and didn’t allow an earned run while striking out three batters to improve to 2-1 on the season.

“I thought Clarke pitched great today,” South Laurel coach James Burns said. “She really did a fantastic job. I didn’t think we came ready to play. We weren’t focused. We had some things to take care of and hopefully we’ve got them out of the way.

“We didn’t hit the ball well, but we managed to get the win,” he added. “Any time you can get a win it’s good.” For Burns it was his 100th win as South Laurel coach.

South Laurel scored three runs in the bottom of the second inning before seeing the Lady Maroons score two unearned runs in the top of the fourth inning to make the score, 3-2. The Lady Cardinals added a run in the bottom of the fourth and put the game away with three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning.

“We never quit,” Burns said. “Once they scored we came back and scored some runs to get the win.”

Brittany Vandeventer led the way with a 3-for-4 effort, which included a double and one RBI while Madyson Morris drove in two runs while collecting a hit. Hagan Burns drove in a run while Leslie Dixon, Kaylee Norvell and Haley Shelby each connected with a hit. Shelby also drove in two runs during the five-run win.

Burns’ squad was back in action Tuesday at home against Corbin with a chance to warp-up the 50th District’s No. 1 seed.

“It will be a good game,” Burns said.
