Foxes sweep Drifters for the softball season

Fox varsity softball has never been better! Last Wednesday, The Drifters (4-3) varsity softball team ran into another Lady Fox (5-2, 9-2) nightmare last week. After a 20-0 loss on their home field, a 10-1 loss at King George earlier in the season, it’s safe to say that the Foxes simply outworked the Drifters in every aspect of the game.
Highlights of the game included a near perfect pitching performance by Taylor Brandts. Brandts stole the show with nine straight strikeouts, giving up one hit. The Foxes bats were lighting up the airwaves with 12 hits, including a two-run, inside-the-park homerun by Katelyn O’Campo.
As for Colonial Beach, Karley Graves pitched seven innings, earning three strikeouts for her efforts. Danielle Galloway and Brittni Devers each hit a double.

In the top of the first inning the Foxes produced three runs courtesy of a sacrifice grounder by Taylor Balmaz, a pass ball, which scored Katelyn Mehl, and a bloop-single hit by Courtney Beck that scored Balmaz.
The scoring for King George continued in the top of the second inning, when O’Campo blasted an inside the park two-run homerun.
Behind 5-0 in the top of the third inning, the Drifters struggled to prevent more King George offense. However, the Foxes managed score another run on a pass-ball.
With the pitching of Brandts keeping the Drifters fans in a state of silence, the Foxes produced four more runs in the fourth inning. Thanks to RBI grounders by Mehl and Natalie McGregor, the Foxes added two runs to their seemingly insurmountable 12-0 lead.
Between the sixth and seventh innings, the Foxes produced eight runs. From throwing errors to a triple by Julie Catlett that produced three runs, everything seemed to be going in the right direction for Foxes.
Earlier in the week during a game against James Monroe on Tuesday, after two consecutive losses against Chancellor and Spotsylvania, the Foxes returned to form with a resounding 16-0 victory over James Monroe. Mehl led the way with 11 strikeouts on defense, and three RBIs that featured a triple, a double and a single.
On Friday, the Foxes offense did not miss a beat as they defeated Caroline 12-1. The victory included an over the fence grand slam homerun by Brandts. Mehl stifled the Cavalier offense with 15 strikeouts, allowing one walk and four hits over a course of seven innings.
Results the Tuesday games featuring Courtland vs. King George, and Colonial Beach vs. Rappahannock were not available due to press deadlines. King George will travel to play Eastern View on Friday, while Colonial will host Essex on Thursday.
