A Rough Start To The Season For PE Softball

Published 4:04 pm Tuesday, March 19, 2013

There were not many bright spots in a 12-2 loss by the Prince Edward County High School softball team to Randolph-Henry in a non-district game played last Thursday on Poulston Field. The Eagles committed numerous fielding errors in the loss, and were held off-balance by R-H pitching for most of the afternoon. Sophomore Lindsay LeSueur (pictured above) did provide some offensive fireworks with a two-run home run in the second inning to cut Randolph-Henry's lead to 3-2, but it wasn't enough to counterbalance the early-season mistakes in the field. “You can't give a team 37 outs and expect it to be close, said PECHS head coach Marvin Meadows. “These things start at the top, so I'll take the blame. We're a work in progress, and it will get better, but we definitely have some things we need to work on.” Below, pitcher Emily Roach tosses a fielded grounder to first in time to pick up the final out of the third inning. Prince Edward was scheduled to host Cumberland on Wednesday afternoon at 5 p.m., and will travel to Randolph-Henry on Friday for a rematch.
