Vandalia, South Central combine for 20 runs

The Vandalia high school softball team picked up its first victory of the season in a 16-4 rout of South Central on Monday.

Four Lady Vandals had three hits in the game, and four other players had an extra-base hit.

Senior Molli Tedrick, who picked up her first win from the pitcher's circle with a complete-game effort, paced the offense with a 3-for-4 day, including three RBI and two runs.

Junior Amber Bruno was 3-for-4, with two RBI and two runs, junior Emilie Britt was 3-for-4, with one RBI and two runs, and sophomore Kylie Sellers was 3-for-5, with a run.

Bruno has had multiple hits in four of Vandalia's five games.

Junior Shelby Foster had a triple, while senior Alex Henna, junior Morgan Whightsil and sophomore Taylor Well each doubled.

As a team, Vandalia (1-4) pounded out 22 hits, and the Lady Vandals scored six times in the first, five times in the second and five times in the fourth.

South Central (0-6) picked up two runs in each of the second and third innings.

Slugfest in St. Elmo

The South Central High School softball team scored a season-high nine runs against St. Elmo last Wednesday, but that wasn't enough to overcome the Lady Eagles in a 12-9 loss.

Sophomore Dani Austin hit her first career home run, and junior Savannah Feezel had a homer and a double to lead St. Elmo's offense.

In addition, junior Megan Maxey ran her hitting streak to five games, with a 3-for-4 effort that included a triple.

"We played solid for all but one inning," said Lady Eagles coach Tom Fedrigon. "Fortunately for us, that inning didn't cost us the game."

The win improved St. Elmo's record to 3-3.

That came in the fourth, when South Central (0-5) scored eight runs, which was twice as many runs as the Lady Cougars had scored in the first four games combined.

Seniors Alexis Phillips paced South Central, with two triples and three RBI. Mia Campbell and Celeste Fox also each had a multi-hit game.

Phillips (0-4) also pitched and took the loss.

Samantha Austin (3-2) was the winning pitcher.
