The regular softball season is coming to an end tomorrow night when the Chiefland High School Lady Indians, 7-10 for the season, travel to Jasper on Friday, April 12, to face Hamilton County whose overall record is 6-8. 


When the two teams met on Feb. 8 in Jasper the Lady Indians prevailed 12-8. 

This is not a district game so it will not affect Chiefland's fourth place standing in the 1A District 7 standings. The CHS Lady Indians are behind Baldwin (9-1), Union County (7-1) and Dixie County (1-7) and ahead of Newberry (1-7)

It was Newberry who gave the Lady Indians their latest victory a week ago.

 The CHS team won 13-8 over the Newberry Panthers on Thursday, April 4. 

Newberry started off with 1 run in the first inning and 2 in the second, but CHS responded with 2 runs of its own. In the third inning, CHS added 3 more runs and another in the fourth, while Newberry came up dry. 

In the sixth inning the Lady Indians brought in 2 more runs. Newberry's scores came on 8 hits while Chiefland scored 13 for 13. 

Chiefland's hitters are freshman Sarah Gore who averaged 1.0; junior Brittany Gillam who averaged .750; freshman Jeana Rosales, senior Mychayla Franklin, freshman Tataneisha Barnes and freshman Hannah Gore who averaged .500; and senior Lauren Tiner with .250. 

Freshman pitcher Lauren Stalvey whose earned run average for the season is 4.17 has racked up 7 wins and 8 losses, pitched 89 innings, struck out 60 batters while holding a .296 batting average.

Pitcher Mychayla Franklin, a senior, has a 2.69 ERA with 1 win and 1 loss. Franklin has 13 runs batted in on 14 hits. Her batting average is .275.
