PH Girls Softball Come Off Break Looking for More Success


The Lady Patriots went into spring break on a 4 game winning streak most recently beating the William Fleming Colonels 16 – 0 on Thursday, April 21.  All Patriots hitters had at least one hit and Grace Putney delivered a two-run home run in the five inning victory.

On Saturday, April 30, the Patriots hosted the Turner Ashby Knights from Harrisonburg for a double header.  The Patriots lost a close 2 – 1 battle in the first game, falling just short and stranding runners on 3rd and 1st base in the bottom of the fifth and final inning.

The Patriots bounced back in the second game with a 3 – 0 victory on the strength of Rachel Hale’s three run double.  Three runs were more than enough as Hannah Otterman pitched a complete game shutout.

The Patriots go back into District play on Tuesday hosting the GW Danville Eagles.  The Patriots are 3 – 1 so far in District play, losing only to undefeated Halifax County.
