St. Aloysius softball team grabbed two victories on Saturday against Jackson Academy and Madison-Ridgeland Academy.

Game One

The Lady Flashes got things going quick against JA as they won 9-0.

Kyleigh Cooper and Megan Theriot both got singles early in the first inning followed by a double by Maddy McSherry to gain a 3-0 lead.

St. Al picked up five runs in the second inning after a walk, a steal, and a single by McSherry and Theriot to push the lead to 8-0.

Marley Gibellino got a single in the final inning to give the Lady Flashes a 9-0 win.

McSherry went 3 for 3 with three RBIs and Theriot finished with two hits and two RBIs. Cooper, Gibellino, and Macy Stauble each had one hit.
Cooper only gave up two hits while striking out seven in the shutout victory.

Game two

Cooper began striking out batters early in the Lady Flashes’ 4-2 victory over MRA.

Theriot helped St. Al get on the board first with a single that led to Cooper getting the run. Stauble then tripled to bring in two runs after a hit by McSherry as they went up 3-0.

MRA got two runs in the third inning from big hits.

Lydia Nettles finished things off for St. Al with a hit that led to McSherry getting the run.

Cooper struck out another seven batters in the win while McSherry went 2 for 2 at the plate. Theriot, Nettles, Stauble, and Theriot each had one hit.

“These girls were on fire today,” Head Coach Savannah Buck said. “We had a long talk after our loss against Central Holmes about holding a lead, keeping the energy high the entire game no matter what, and getting quality at bats and today they did just that. We cut our errors tremendously and Kyleigh kept it lights out on the mound. I’m very excited for them.”
