Softball team bests Escondido, Morse
By Bill Tamburrino
The Bulldog softball team improved its record to 8-1-1 as it beat perennial power Escondido High School and Morse High School in non-league games.
The Lady Dawgs will be off for Spring Break until April 11, when they open Palomar League play against Mt. Carmel on the road.
Kailey Hill dominated Escondido in an 11-0 victory shortened to six innings due to the 10 run mercy rule.
Hill went six innings and only gave up two hits and gave up one walk as she struck out nine Cougars. Only an Escondido base runner advanced to second base.
Hill also had a good day at the plate. She hit a three-run home run in the first inning driving in Jazmin Simone and Kim Whelehon who opened the game with back to back singles. Whelehon had a 3-for-3 day at the plate.
Amber Davis also had a multi hit game. Davis went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Kenzie Wright ripped a two-run home run for the Lady Dawgs in the third inning. KK Melgoza had a double in three trips. Kristina Barrameda and Adrianna Johnson also hit safely in the 11 hit barrage.
Ramona used the same formula in defeating Morse High School 7-1 on the road. Davis hit a three-run blast driving in Whelehon and Hill who both singled. That was all the runs that Julie Ward would need as she went the distance and did not give up an earned run while striking out six. She limited Morse to three hits and gave up three walks.
Hill and Davis had two hit outings as Ramona made the most of five hits and three Tiger errors in scoring seven runs.
