Vikings open busy week with victory

TERRE HAUTE — West Vigo defeated Shakamak 13-9 in a high school softball game played in cool, rainy conditions Monday evening at West Vigo.

The Vikings improved to 6-3 to begin a busy week on the diamond. They are at South Vermillion today for their Western Indiana Conference opener, play host to Paris in a makeup game on Wednesday and are the host team for a tournament Saturday.

West Vigo scored five runs in the first frame and had an 11-0 lead after three frames. But the Lakers plated three runs in the fourth and six in the fifth to make it an 11-9 game, leaving the tying runs on base in the fifth.

Leah Morrison came on in relief of starter Hannah Harden in the fifth.

He shut out the Lakers in the final two innings after giving up one run in the fifth.

Kelsey Samm drove in two of the three runs scored by the Lakers in the fourth and Laura Sue Irons drove in two runs in the fifth with a double — the only extra-base hit for the visiting team.

Irons, Brooke Lambermont, Alyssa Garo and Bryly Shipman all had two hits for the Lakers, now 2-4 for the season.

McKenzie Little was 3 for 3 for the Vikings and scored a pair of runs.  Morrison, Brittany Voils and Kaitlyn Sollars all had two hits. Lexus Elkins and Charity Lane each doubled and Mary Curley drove in three runs.

“We had some bonehead plays on the bases, preventing us from scoring more runs. We hit the ball well. I was proud of the players for not giving up and playing through some adversity,” said West Vigo coach Cherish Easton.
