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

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“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.
