Lady Dukes softball team begins 1-0

Published 1:46 pm Saturday, March 21, 2015

Starting off the softball season at home, freshman E.J. Bankson picked up her first varsity win at Windsor High School. The Lady Dukes defeated Bruton High School 7-4 on Thursday.

Junior Brittany Wade was 3-for-4 at the plate, and freshman Sydney Carter and senior Kelsey Searcy contributed two hits each in the win against the Lady Panthers.

On the defensive side of the ball, freshman Alyssa Funai got her first start at shortstop, and junior Peyton Gay moved from third base to second base. Head coach Sean Wade said they both made key stops to put an end to Bruton’s comeback surge.

Wade said winning is a nice way to start the season, but the young team still has a long way to go.

The Dukes (1-0) will be in action again on Friday, March 27, when they host the King William Lady Cavaliers (0-1).
