Lady Vikings Overtake KIPP 15-0

On Friday, March 23, 2018, the Lady Vikings hosted Kipp Tech from Gaston, NC.  We had heard they had a new softball program. We did not know what to expect.  Three of our varsity players were attending the Model General Assembly (MGA) in Richmond. The decision was made to pull 2 of our best JV players to play this Varsity game rather than reschedule.  One of my varsity pitchers, Jamie Saunders was attending MGA and the other, Emily Roberts, had been sick and did not attend school on Thursday.   Starting the game was Sydney Paul, a left-handed JV pitcher, and Alyssa Rivas, JV catcher.

Sydney pitched a great game only allowing 3 hits while striking out 5.  Alyssa blocked all the balls doing a great job behind the plate.   Kipps’ pitching was not very good and I was proud of how our girls adjusted.   The highlight of the game was Senior Kelsey Holloway’s hitting a inside the park grand slam homerun.
