Prep Softball: Quitman wins three at Stanley Tourney

One incredible streak came to an end but two more continued as Quitman steamrolled their way to three straight victories in the Stanley Tournament this past Friday and Saturday. 

In a battle between the two top teams in north Louisiana among small schools, heading into the weekend the Division V, 2nd ranked Lady Wolverines beat Logansport, ranked #1 in Division IV by a 10-1 margin on Friday. Quitman followed that up on Saturday by “ten running” both Glenbrook Academy and host Stanley by 10-0 and 16-6 scores. 

Bombs away! The Lady Wolverines played long ball, going “yard” eight times in the three contests. Included were three bombs by Maggie Guyotte and both Averie Williams and Madison Chaplin hitting their first-round trippers of the year. Seventh grader Hallie Kate Pullig hit her 5th of the year and first-ever grand slam and Maddie Kaye Brymer connected for her third round-tripper this season as Quitman’s upped their team total to 35 in the 20 games played. 

One streak ends! All good things must come to an end according to an old saying but in this case, it just took a game off. What is being referred to is the incredible consecutive-game home run streak that Maggie Guyotte had put together that was stopped in the second game of the tournament after eight straight games. Guyotte responded by hitting two out in the third game to up her total to 17 which leads the nation for freshmen and is the second-highest in the state among all classes. She also increased her RBI total to 44, which ranks 2nd in the state and tops among 9th graders in the nation according to MaxPreps.

Two streaks continue! Cali Deal beat both Logansport and Glenbrook in consecutive days to run her record this year to a perfect 10-0 with two saves. Against the top-ranked Lady Tigers, the lanky lefty gave up just one hit and struck out a season-high 17 while also striking out 11 and tossing her second no-hitter of the season against Glenbrook. For the year Deal now has 122 strikeouts in just 68.1 innings pitched while compiling a minuscule 1.53 ERA.  

With the three weekend wins, the Lady Wolverines upped their season record to 16-4 and also ran their current win streak to 15 straight. During the span, Quitman has scored 10 or more runs in the last six games in a row and the tenth time overall.

Lady Tigers double-dip Arcadia 

Jonesboro-Hodge continued their remarkable turnaround this season by winning a pair against Arcadia by 15-1 and 13-12 scores.

No game stats were available. 

Lady Wolves fall to Claiborne Christian

(Thursday) It was one of those days where nothing went well as Claiborne Christian, ranked #1 in Division V among “select” schools beat Weston 15-0 in four innings. With the loss, the Lady Wolves fell to 4-11 while CCA improved to 14-3 on the year. 

One doesn’t have to look past the first inning to gauge what kind of day it was. In Weston’s first at-bat, all three batters fanned. Conversely, Claiborne Christian’s first three all walked and before the inning was over four errors had been committed. By game end, Weston still had not managed a hit and made a season-high 12 boo-boos. Weston did have four batters reach base during the contest with Lainee Trosclair walking twice, and both Josie Irvin and Jacie Ledford coaxing a free pass.
