Ritchie wins seventh LKC softball title

GLENVILLE – Ritchie County continued its domination of the Little Kanawha Conference sotball scene here Friday, rolling to a pair of shutout wins to capture its seventh straight league championship.

Coach Dave Mossor’s team opened play on Fiday with a dominating 10-0 win over Doddridge County, a game that was called after four innings due to the mercy rule. Kenna DeLancey not only threw a one-hitter for the Rebels, but she also aided the hitting cause with a pair of RBIs. Moie Ray also drove home two runs for the Rebels, while Vanessa Tallman and Becca Sullivan each had a pair of hits.

In the championship game against Ravenswood, Ray threw a seven-inning three-hit shutout as the Rebels scored two runs each in the first, third and fifth innings for a 6-0 win.

DeLancey was the hitting hero, going 3-for-3 with a single, double and triple. Ray had a pair of hits and Tracy Lamp had an RBI as Ritchie ran its record to 20-3.

The Rebels will enter sectional play next Wednesday as they will await the winner of Tuesday’s sectional opener pitting Ravenswood against Roane County. The winner of that game will travel to Ellenboro to meet the Rebels.
