BREAKING NEWS: Lady Cougars complete perfect season with title defense

   
 RALEIGH—Bailey Sherrill had two hits and drove in three runs to help lead Alexander Central to a convincing 18-7 victory over Cape Fear on Saturday in the second game of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 4-A softball championship series at Walnut Creek Softball Complex.           
The victory by the Cougars gave them a sweep of the series and completed a perfect 35-0 season.  Sherrill, who had two hits on Friday night in Alexander Central’s 4-3 victory, was named the series Most Valuable Player.

Alexander has made seven trips to the championships since 1996 and has won four state titles in the last six years.

The game was close until the late innings, with Cape Fear leading 3-2 after two and then scoring twice in the fifth to cut the margin to 6-5 after the Cougars had scored four times in the third. But Alexander Central tallied five times in the sixth and then scored seven times in the seventh.

Tianna Batts hit safely four times for Alexander Central while Averi Miller had two hits and three runs batted in.  Haley Cashwell and Kelli Freeman had three hits apiece for the Colts, who finished 26-3.

The Raleigh Sports Consortium and Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau serve as host city sponsors for the championship..
