Softball: No. 1 Buford holds off White County
By staff reports
CLEVELAND – Bria Bush scattered nine hits in a complete-game effort in leading Class AAA No. 1 Buford to a 5-1 win over White County Thursday in Region 7-AAA girls softball action.
Bush fanned nine White County batters and did not issue a walk.
The Lady Wolves (12-0, 3-0 in region) took advantage of an error and a wild pitch in the first inning to jump out to a quick 3-0 lead and then held on for the win. White County cut the lead to 3-1 in the third when Madeline Bryson singled and then scored on a single by Lindsey Whitmire.
But Buford took advantage of five walks to extend the lead to 5-1 in the fifth with a 2-out double from freshman Drew Puckett.
Bush finished with two hits at the plate. Niki Cook had one hit, stole one base, and scored on run for Buford.
Whitmire finished with three hits to lead the Lady Warriors. Mary Ann Luna, Kristin Mullis, Brittany Cooper, Morgan Sullens, and Sarabeth Cummins each had one hit for White County.
NOTES: Buford sophomore second baseman Jordan Deep made her season-debut from a hamstring injury stroking a double in her first at bat, plating the Lady Wolves’ second run.
