Tribe sweeps Stanhope Elmore, tied for area leadPublished 4:15am Saturday, April 13, 2013
After last season’s debacle of a finish, the Wetumpka High Lady Indians are in position to claim the Area 7 championship, if they handle business.
“We’re guaranteed a tie,” said Randy Belyeu, coach of the Lady Indians.
“If we handle our business for the remaining two games, we don’t have to worry about tie breakers.”
The Lady Indians are in Phenix City this weekend, competing in the Sidney Cooper Round Robin with Holtville and Northview (Dothan).
The Lady Tribe will cap the 2013 regular season with games against Central-Phenix City (Tuesday, back on the road), Thompson (April 18 at home), Prattville (April 23 on the road) and Prattville Christian (April 25 at home).
The Lady Indians improved to 4-0 Wednesday night with a 4-1 win.
In a battle of sophomore arms, Lauren Lett picked up the win while Amanda Ingram was saddled with the loss.
The Lady Mustangs jumped ahead to start the game.
Jourdan Foradori (two hits) drove in Kelsie Hogan for the Lady Mustangs only run of the night.
Wetumpka answered in the bottom of the second and then plated runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings.
Jamaica Williams had the biggest hit of the night with a solo home run. She also scored a second time.
Williams, Alex Christian, Alexis Strickland and Courtney Richardson drove home the Tribe’s runs.
With Williams scoring twice, sisters Ashley and Sydney Dixon accounted for another pair of Indians runs.
Kirstie Reynolds and Moody Dejarnette accounted for a pair of Stanhope Elmore hits.
