Patient Tigers power past T-Wolves in run-rule victory



“We didn’t take advantage (of their pitching). We went after the first pitch,” she said. “We didn’t wait for good pitches. They made us throw strikes.”

Also for NHS, Hibbert went 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs, Michaela Hardin went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI and Ciara Longman went 2 for 4 with three RBIs.

For North, which led 6-1 after a five-run top-of-the-second-inning, Desiree Hutchinson went 2 for 3 with three RBIs and Katelyn Dollard went 2 for 2 with a sacrifice fly and two RBIs.

Last spring, the Tigers graduated seven seniors. Gonzales entered the season believing he has a talented squad, but also that a lot of meshing will have to take place.

“We have a high ceiling. We have a lot of talent,” he said. “Once we put the pieces together, I think we can do some really good things.”

At the plate, at least, on a cold and windy evening at the NHS softball complex, the Tigers did some very good things and won going away.
