CLOVER — The Clover High School girls’ softball team remained unbeaten in Region 3-AAAA entering this week’ final regular-season games.
The Lady Blue Eagles have been equal to the challenge in recent games, including a 10-0 win against Rock Hill in which pitcher Elizabeth Edmunds tossed a three-hitter.
Blake Wallert led Clover at the plate with two hits in three at-bats, including an RBI and three stolen bases.
The Clover girls also rolled past Lancaster 13-2, with Edmunds picking up her 15th win of the season.
Emily Robinson was 3-for-4 at the plate, including an RBI. Marisa Harkey had two hits and an RBI, and Wallert was 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Brittany Rhinehardt had two hits, an RBI and scored three runs.
In other action, Wallert tossed a complete-game three-hitter and the Lady Blue Eagles collected nine hits in defeating South Pointe 5-1.
Emily Robinson had three hits and drove in a run to lead the CHS girls at the plate. Madison Tepfenhart was 2-for-4 with two RBIs.
Clover coach Shea Hall said the key to continued success in Region 3-AAAA is to remain focused in every inning. “Our kids have responded so far,” said Hall. “They know teams in the region are coming after us.”
The defending region champions have been targeted by region opponents since the season began. “I know it sounds like a broken record, but keeping the focus is the key to continued success in the region,” said Hall.
The Lady Blue Eagles close out the regular-season Friday at York starting at 7 p.m.
