Lady Eagles softball team wins two

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

The Purdy Lady Eagles softball team has started the season off on the right foot, winning Monday against Billings, 15-5, and Tuesday night against Sarcoxie, 7-0.

The Lady Eagles' start to the Billings game was a little shaky after committing three errors to load the bases, Purdy Lady Eagles Head Coach Jeff Swadley was forced to call timeout and huddle his team on the mound.

"I told the girls to calm down and remember what we worked on in practice," said Swadley. "I think it was just the nerves of playing the first game of the season."

The team got the message. Pitcher Brooke Swadley (1-0) retired the next three batters to close the inning as she went on to get the win as well.

The bats for the Lady Eagles also came alive.

"We hit the ball really well tonight," Swadley said. "The girls settled down and went to work. I am pleased with the effort put forth by these young ladies."

Taylor Moller went one for three with a two-run RBI double, Carlee Hall was two for three with two RBIs and Brooke Swadley helped her own cause going three for five with two RBIs.

Against Sarcoxie, the Lady Eagles won 7-0. Carleigh Hall (1-0) got the win.
Addy Roller was two for at the plate with one RBI, and Brooke Swadley added a RBI double.

The Lady Eagles travel to Miller on Thursday.
