SEVIERVILLE-The hits and runs just kept on coming.
After a pair of losses to open Disrict 2-AAA play last week, the Cocke County Lady Red bounced back with a huge 12-1 win over Sevier County on Tuesday in just five innings.
Taylor Reed earned the victory inside the circle, throwing a complete game while surrendering just three hits and striking out eight.
The Lady Red (1-2) also finished with 15 hits offensively and were led by sophomore shortstop Leah Lewandowski with three base hits, one of which was a home run.
“This is a good win for the girls,” Cocke County head coach Jan Sneed said. “We’re hitting the ball very well. We mixed the batting lineup a little bit this time and put a senior (Jordan Ray) at the leadoff spot and she really just came out and gang-busted for us today, leading off with a triple. And then (Mikayla Williams) comes right behind her and does the same thing. This was just a big morale booster for us.”
“I also can’t say enough about Taylor Reed pitching. She had a rough start down at South Doyle and really just came back and battled here and pitched well. She really just pitched extremely, extremely well. She was hitting her spots.”
