GLEN ROSE

Two Jaguar freshmen stole the spotlight on the softball diamond Tuesday night in Glen Rose.

Zoe Isom and Elizabeth Schmidt both launched their first-career home run to lift Midlothian Heritage over Glen Rose in come-from-behind fashion, 5-3.

Isom was the first to leave the yard. Her two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning gave the Jaguars a short-lived 2-0 lead.

The Glen Rose Lady Tigers then scored two in the bottom half of the frame and a third in the bottom of the fifth inning. Glen Rose carried the 3-2 lead into the top of the seventh inning.

Down to their final three outs and facing a second-straight District 8-4A loss, the Jaguars scratched three runs — highlighted by Schmidt's round-tripper.

Heritage also scored on an error in the frame, one of three committed by the Lady Tigers on the evening. The Jaguars did not commit an error in the ballgame.

Isom also picked up the complete-game victory inside the circle. She struck out seven, walked four and was charged with all three runs (two earned) in her seven innings of work.

Jordan Freas, Rachael Gray, and Tatum Pilkington picked up one hit each for the Jaguars.
