Shelby Softball Win Streak Halted

Shelby’s three-game winning streak in softball ground to a halt Thursday with an 18-5 non-conference setback against Ashland.

The Lady Whippets tumble to 6-11 with the defeat.

The Arrows wasted no time in taking control of the game with an eight-run outburst during the opening at bat of the contest which was highlighted by three home runs.

Ashland extended its lead to 18-0 in the top of the fifth inning.

SHS displayed some fireworks in the bottom of inning No. 5 when Sydnie Seibert cleared the bases with a grand slam.

Kristen Stromack chalked up the win and finished with 11 strikeouts and two walks. She helped her cause with two of the Arrows four round trippers in the game.

Kaycee Hess lasted two-thirds of an inning and took the loss. She yielded eight runs on six hits and three walks.

“It was nice to see the girls battle back in the bottom of the fifth when the game was on the line and we were about ready to get run ruled. We talked with them after the game about what if we had scored those five runs in the bottom of the first inning instead of waiting until the bottom of the fifth. That would have been a totally different ball game,” said SHS coach Natalie Huggins.

Shelby will look to bounce back today with a game at Lexington.
