(April 27, 2018) The Stephen Decatur softball team was consistent throughout Monday’s game against the Washington Jaguars in Princess Anne, and the Lady Seahawks came home with a 13-1 victory.

“We finally had a game where we didn’t have a bad inning,” Decatur Assistant Coach Cheryl Harte said. “We stayed focused, positive and mentally tough even when Washington got a few solid hits. We finally played our game defensively and offensively.”

Decatur scored one run in the first and four in the second. The Seahawks added three runs in the third and five in the fifth. Washington tallied its run in the third inning.

Junior Lexi Black pitched all five innings. She struck out eight, walked two and allowed five hits.

Black was also productive at the plate. She went 3-for-4 (two doubles and a two-run home run in the fifth), scored once and logged four RBIs.

Sophomore Sierra Eisemann went 4-for-4  (four singles), scored three times, stole four bases and racked up three RBIs.

Sophomore Amber Whittaker had one single and two doubles. She scored three times and had three RBIs.
