CEDAR HILL — The Waxahachie Lady Indians grabbed an early lead and made it stand up on Tuesday night as they stayed perfect on the young District 7-6A softball season with a 7-4 victory over Cedar Hill.
Kylee Raney went the distance and struck out 11 to pick up the win in the circle for the Lady Indians (11-10, 2-0), allowing four hits and walking just two. Raney got into a little trouble in the fifth inning as Cedar Hill scored all four of its runs on two bunt singles and a passed ball, but she regrouped and posted zeroes the rest of the way.
Roo Stone was 2-for-3 with a walk and scored two runs, and Marlee Jackson batted 2-for-4 with an RBI to lead WHS. Kadin Vire and Samantha Christian each contributed an RBI.
The Lady Indians took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first as Vire scored on a passed ball, Jackson singled home Stone, and Christian was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. In the fifth, Kennadi Massey doubled and later scored on an error, and Vire scored again from third on a wild pitch to make it 5-0.
Christian made it 6-0 on Vire’s groundout in the fifth, and Stone ended the scoring by touching home on another passed ball in the sixth.
The Lady Indians have the weekend off and are scheduled for now to return to action next Tuesday at Mansfield Lake Ridge. The next home game for the Lady Indians is set for next Friday against Mansfield High.
