By By Clif Knight, Hartselle Enquirer
Hartselle’s Lady Tigers wrapped up a first place finish in softball competition against area opponents by blanking Russellville 6-0 at the Grady and Margie Long Softball Complex on Wednes-day, April 7.
The win improved their overall record to 24-13 and 5-1 in the area and earned a number one seed and home field advantage in the upcoming area tournament.
The Lady Tigers grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning on a double and single, scored two more in the third and closed out the win with a three-run fourth inning.
Olivia Golden set the pace at the plate with a pair of singles. Lindsey Romager and Chelsea Bennich each doubled and Ashley Bonner, Alex Paulsen, Meaghan Gray and Kelsey Starr each singled.
