Lady Tiger Sharks add win, loss to season record

Port St. Joe’s softball team found no joy during their visit to Franklin County on Thursday, March 23, as sophomore pitcher Sarah Ham spun a three-hitter to lead the Seahawks (8-5) to an 8-0 win over the Tiger Sharks. 

Allowing no free passes, Ham fanned 12 Tiger Shark batters. 

Ham also contributed heavily to her own cause at the plate, getting three hits, including two doubles, driving in three, and scoring a run. 

Franklin County got off to a fast start, taking a 3-0 lead in their first at bat, then three more in the fourth inning and the final two runs in the sixth. 

But St. Joe found Friday night’s trip to Quincy to be much more satisfying as they thrashed Munroe (1-7) 12-0 in only four innings of action. 

Addy Silcox allowed only one hit and a walk while striking out three Bobcat hitters. She also had a hit, scored a run, and drove in one. 

Lauren Brant, Addy Creekmore, and Anniston Gainer each collected two hits, with one of Brant’s being a two-bagger. Brant also scored a run and drove in another. 

Creekmore scored once, and led the team with four runs batted in, while Gainer touched the plate twice. 

Chelsea Bishop, Maelynn Butler, and Elli Newman each got a hit, with Butler scoring once and Newman scoring two runs and driving in one. 

Brooklyn Bishop scored twice and drove in a run, and Bre Fleming added two runs scored. 

After hosting Wewahitchka on Monday, March 27, and playing at winless Bay High on Tuesday, the Tiger Sharks will play two home games to end the week. 

Wakulla (7-5) will come to town on Thursday, March 30, and Taylor County (6-4) will be here on Friday. Both home games are scheduled to have a 6:00 p.m. first pitch start.
