Higley overwhelms to keep Lady Tigers perfect

CATOOSA – Madison Higley struck out 18 batters and held Catoosa to four hits and one run, leading the Lady Tigers to a 3-1 win over the Lady Indians in Catoosa on Monday.

Higley (9-0) dominated in the circle from the start for the Class 4A No. 4 Lady Tigers, striking out the first nine batters she faced before giving up a hit in the fourth inning to end the streak.

“I called a change up and the girl stuck her bat out and blooped it right over Madison’s head,” said Fort Gibson coach Jaime Snyder.

The Lady Tigers (9-0) plated their first run in the second inning and made the score 2-0 after three innings. Catoosa cut the deficit in half with a run in the bottom of the fourth before the Lady Tigers ended the scoring with a run in the fifth.

“We hit the ball good and hard,” Snyder said. “We had runners on base in every inning. We just couldn’t string hits together. We didn’t do a good job of adjusting to hit balls where they weren’t.”

Fort Gibson finished the game with 12 hits with Mackenzie Williams going 3-for-4 with one run batted in and one run scored. Kelsey Hornback was 2-for-3, Brea Jordan was 2-for-4 with an RBI and Miranda Cherry was 1-for-3 with an RBI.

The Lady Tigers return to action at 5 p.m. today with a game at Miami.
