The DeKalb County High School Tigerette fast-pitch softball team opened their regular season on Tuesday, with a double-header sweep of visiting Stone Memorial. The DeKalb County girls won the pair of games, 3-1 in the opener, and 1-0 in the nightcap.
DeKalb County struck with three runs on four hits in the bottom of the first inning in game one. Victoria Bennett led off the inning with a double, and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Cynthia Woodward. Jaylen Garrett plated Bennett with an RBI single, while Kristina Stephens and Kara Young followed with back-to-back RBI triples to make it a 3-0 game.
Stone Memorial scored their only run on an error in the top of the second inning. DeKalb County managed just one more hit after the first inning, as Garrett ripped a third inning single.
Morgan Page worked the full five innings for the win, as she allowed one unearned run on two hits, struck out five, walked four and hit two batters.
