Junior pitcher Reghan Matlock allowed only three hits last Tuesday, April 9, as the Seymour varsity softball team recorded its sixth win of the spring season, defeating rival
Fordland 14-1 in road action.
Matlock pitched the full five innings for the host Tigers, allowing just one unearned run while striking out three.
She needed only 53 pitches to record the victory.
“Reghan threw strikes,” Tiger head coach Ellisha Hastings said. “Of her 53 pitches, 44 of them were for strikes.”
The victory improved Seymour’s spring record to 6-4, which is the team’s best spring mark after 10 games in six seasons.
Seymour’s offense also sparkled in the 13-run decision as the Tigers scored seven first-inning runs to open the game.
The Tigers led 8-1 after two innings and 12-1 after three frames.
The team’s final two runs came in the fifth inning.
Pacing the Seymour offense were junior Libby Buchanan and sophomore Crystal Misemer.
Buchanan was 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and two runs batted in (RBIs).
Misemer was a perfect 3-for-3 with three runs scored.
Adding two hits, two runs scored and two RBIs were junior Rylea Owens and sophomore Macey Hubbard.
Junior Hayley Clark singled and had one RBI.
Sophomore Karli Henry added a single and two RBIs. She also scored a run.
Kaytlyn Jones scored twice, while senior Kelsey Turner and Matlock each scored once. Matlock and Jones each drew two walks.
Seymour finished with 12 hits.
Next action for the Tigers arrives next Monday when the team travels to Plato.

Both games start at 4:30 p.m.
