East Jessamine’s softball team looked in mid-season form in its second game of the season Saturday. The Lady Jags (2-2) defeated Lexington Catholic 5-2 in the second game of a split doubleheader. East lost to Anderson County 8-3 in game one.
“I thought in the first game we looked like it was our first game; (we looked) nervous,” East Jessamine coach Tom Hamm said. “(Between games), we talked to them, did a little switching in the infield, and in the second game, they came out and only had one error. Haylee (Hamm) had a no-hitter going into the sixth inning, and Sarah and Haylee hit the ball well.”
In East’s victory, Sarah Rainwater drove in three runs; pitcher Haylee Hamm had a no-hitter through five and two-thirds innings.
The Lady Jaguars were able to jump on Catholic in the first inning as Ashlyn Dray drew a bases-loaded walk to force in Heather Welch.
