VICKSBURG — Allie Feltus, Koleman Gracer Fisher and Lily Crum each had big games at the plate for Cathedral High School as the Lady Green Wave held on for an 8-6 win over the Porter’s Chapel Academy Lady Eagles Thursday afternoon.
Feltus went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, two runs batted in, one run scored and two stolen bases. Fisher went 2-for-5 with one RBI, one run scored and one stolen base. Crum was 1-for-2, was walked twice, reached on an error, stole two bases, had one RBI, and scored three runs.
Cathedral starting pitcher Anna Poole was on the mound for the Lady Green Wave and pitched a complete game. Poole had a 5-1 to work with heading into the bottom of the fourth inning before walks and RBIs by E. Collins and S. Mastas allowed Porter’s Chapel to get right back in the game. The Lady Eagles would score three runs in that frame to make it a 5-4 game.
However, that would be as close as they would get as the Lady Green Wave scored two runs in the top of the fifth inning and added a key insurance run in the top of the seventh. Porter’s Chapel, on the other hand, were held to one run in the bottom of the fifth and seventh innings.
Poole gave up six runs, two of them earned, on five hits with five strikeouts and six walks to earn the win on the mound.
Stolen bases were a key factor in the Lady Green Wave’s win. Katelon Nettles had three stolen bases and scored two runs and Gracie Harrigill was walked twice, stole two bases and scored one run.
Cathedral played host to its own round-robin tournament on Saturday as it took on Centreville Academy at 11:25 a.m. and Porter’s Chapel at 2:05 p.m.
