North Central received a taste of three different brands of softball last week as Mike Grigsby and company fashioned a 1-2 record following the first week of regular season play.
The Lady Knights opened their campaign with a one-run, 5-4 loss in McBee last Tuesday in a contest which came after they went 2-1 in their own pre-season tournament.
In the setback at the hands of the Lady Panthers, Alexis Baker, Erin Humphries, Abby Outlaw and Alexa Williamson each had two-hit nights. Humphries was the tough-luck losing pitcher on the evening.
One night later, NC ran roughshod over AAA entry A.C. Flora in a 23-1 victory over the Lady Falcons.
Kelsie Gardner and Logan Coates joined Baker and Humphries with three-hit nights while Maranda McCaskill scored four times. Humphries pitched the hostesses to victory.
Last Thursday, NC opened Region 4-AA action with a 17-0 loss to Buford despite Baker’s two hits with Coates getting the third Lady Knight base hit
