  • Despite being outhit by the Lady Red Devils, the Rosepine Lady Eagles (17-1, 3-0) defeated Pickering (7-9, 1-3), 4-0, Monday evening at Pickering High School.
    Rosepine has now won 10 straight games dating back to March 5, and is ranked No. 3 in the state for Class 2A, according to power rankings released Tuesday. Rosepine first threatened to score in the top of the third, when the Lady Eagles loaded the bases with nobody out. But Morgan LaTour grounded out to the pitcher, Lauryn McMahon field out, and Hannah Cardy grounded to short to end the inning.
    In the bottom half of the inning, the Lady Red Devils had runners on first and second with one out, but Amy McKellar grounded out and Summer Atkins struck out before any damage was done. Rosepine scored its first two runs in the fourth inning, when McMahon singled to right, scoring Lexi Pierce and Madisen Smith. The single came after Tabatha Pierce was tagged out trying to score on a groundout to the shortstop.
    Pickering once again threatened to score in the fifth, when they had a runner on third with no outs. But a strikeout, groundout and a popout ended the inning without any runs being scored and the score remaining 2-0.
    In the sixth, Rosepine added two more runs after Desiree Whitaker scored on a wild pitch, and Amy Johnson scored after Lexi Pierce reached first on an error.
    Three players — McMahon, Cardy and Whitaker — had hits for the Lady Eagles, and Johnson added a stolen base. Pickering was led by Sydnee Carter's two hits and Laci Young's two steals.
    LaTour took the win for Rosepine, allowing no runs on four hits, walking one and striking out eight. Atkins started for Pickering and allowed four runs (none earned) on three hits, walking four and striking out four.
