Barrett then drilled a double that scored Wolffe, Grooms and Schwartz.

“Our bats came out from the beginning of the game and we hit the ball hard,” Miami Trace head coach Terry Smith said. “Again, we’ve hit the ball hard most of the year, all the way through the line-up. We had girls again with multiple hit games. We’ve hit an awful lot of doubles this year.”

Home run production is up as well, Smith noted.

Brooke Henry and Ashley Campbell each have four home runs; Alexis Schwartz, Taylor Barrett and Jessica Camp have each hit two home runs.

“Five different girls hitting home runs is the most I’ve had on a team,” Smith said.

Smith is hoping the Lady Panthers can find a game next week prior to the Sectional tournament game at home against Washington Wednesday at 5 p.m.
