In sports, as it is in life, sometimes it’s just not your day. The Washington County Commanderette softball team had one of those days Tuesday evening as they were no-hit by Mercer County in an 18-0, three-inning rout. The Titans scored 13 runs in the first, one in the second and four in the fourth, touching eighth-grade starting pitcher Hannah Coulter for 21 hits.
On Monday, the Commanderettes hosted the Adair County Lady Indians, falling 7-2.
Adair jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but WC tied it up with a pair in the bottom of the second with doubles by juniors Linda Libby and Olivia Thompson.
The score remained tied until the fourth, when the Lady Indians plated four runs to go up 6-2, and they added another in the seventh to ensure the win. Coulter took the loss, giving up 14 hits while striking out one and walking two.
The Commanderettes host a pair of home games this week as Elizabethtown visits on Thursday and then Burgin on Tuesday.
