It was a nice bounce back for the Chapmanville Regional High School softball team on Wednesday at the Best of the Best Tournament at Buffalo.
After falling at Wayne on Tuesday night in a make-up game, the Class AA No. 3 Lady Tigers came back on Wednesday and won a pair of games at Buffalo, blanking Shady Spring 13-0 and then holding on to beat Cardinal Conference foe Sissonville 4-3.
The Lady Tigers (12-3) had no trouble against Shady as Allison Evans fired a two-hit shutout win. She struck out 12 and walked four. At the plate, Evans added a hit.
Chapmanville was led by first baseman Heather Nagy, who was 4-for-4 at the plate with a double. Nagy was 2-for-3 with a double in the Sissonville game, giving her a 6-for-7 day. Last weekend, Nagy hit a home run in Chapmanville’s Lady Tigers’ Invitational.
“She’s hitting the ball very hard,” Lady Tigers’ coach Ronnie Ooten said of Nagy. “Both of her doubles bounced over the fence for ground rule doubles.”
Jenna Evans also had a big day against Shady Spring as she was 3-for-3. Savanna Vance went 2-for-4, while Brandi Broom added a double. Lauryn Easterling and Hanna Wooten both singled.
In the win over Sissonville, Jenna Evans pitched the complete game win, allowing three runs and three hits with five strikeouts and one walk. She helped her cause with two hits at the plate. Her twin sister Allison Evans was 3-for-4 to lead the team.
In addition to Nagy’s two hits against the Indians, Broom, Vance and Wooten all added hits.
Chapmanville is scheduled to return to the diamond on Thursday at home against Point Pleasant in a league matchup. The first pitch is set for 5:30 p.m.
The Lady Tigers then play at Class AA sectional foe Mingo Central on Friday before heading back to the Best of the Best with a Saturday morning clash at 10 against sectional and conference rival Scott.
