Megan Wilson and Temple Albritton scored 4 runs each, helping to launch the
Atmore Christian School girls’ softball team past Christian Collegiate Academy, 20-5, last Tuesday, April 6.
The Rams fired up early on offense during the first inning when Albritton singled on an 0-2 count, scoring 1 run. From there, it was off to the races for ACS.
The Rams’ highlight game moment came when ACS tallied 6 total runs in
the fourth inning. The big inning was driven by a walk by from Elizabeth Terry, a triple from Albritton and a double from Wilson. In addition to scoring 4 runs,
Albritton went 4-for-3 at bat and stole base 8 times, while Wilson went 5-for-4 with 1 home run. Wilson registered 4 RBIs and Albritton had 3 supporting the duo’s performance was a slew of Ram heavy hitters. Anna
Weaver, Elizabeth Terry and Abby Ross scored 3 runs each. Mia Morris, Tori Strength and Jordan Overton scored 1 run each. Weaver gained the win on the mound for the Rams. The hurler lasted 5 innings, allowing 7 hits and 5 runs while striking out 5 batters. The Rams collected 14 total hits and stolen bases.
ACS head coach Bethany Albritton stressed that the game was defiantly a season highlight for the team.
“We remained strong and consistent,” she said. “During the fourth inning we made two errors which gave them four runs. Despite that we had a great game.” According to ACS coaching staff, the team is now 2-2 in conference play and the Christian Collegiate Academy will travel to Atmore this Thursday, April 15 to face the Rams at home. ACS is scheduled to finish their season with the Panhandle Christian Conference Championship at the end of the month.
