CHS Softball: Tigers open 16-4A slate with win at Jacksonville 14-2

Kirk has 4 RBIs; Polk, Triplett combine for 5 stolen bases

JACKSONVILLE — — Sidney Kirk had four RBIs and Katy Polk and Kelsie Triplett combined for five stolen bases as the Tigers opened district play with a 14-2 victory over Jacksonville on Tuesday afternoon.

Corsicana (13-7, 1-0) had a big day from Polk, who was 3 for 3 with a triple, four runs scored and three stolen bases. Triplett was 1 for 1 with two walks, three RBIs and two stolen bases.

Kirk struck out the first seven Jacksonville batters that she faced.

She did not allow a base runner until the fifth inning when the lead-off hitter for the Maidens reached on an error by the Corsicana third baseman.

Jacksonville’s Jordane Mallard then smacked a home run off of the score board in left field that gave the Maidens both of their runs.

Kirk fanned nine and walked none in going the distance.

The Tigers scored in every inning but the fourth. Corsicana scored once in the first, three times in the second and scored five times in the third and fifth innings.

Corsicana will take the rest of the week off before swinging back into action Tuesday for its district home opener against John Tyler.

The Tigers JV won 13-12.

Corsicana 4, China Springs 2: Raylee Smithart had two RBIs and Sidney Kirk picked up the win as Corsicana defeated China Spring 4-2 in a non-district game on Friday.

Kelsie Triplett and Leeah Seth had doubles for the Lady Tigers, who scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to snap a 1-1 tie.

  • 4-16-14NVSBMoerbe slides.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs get ranked, split with Paris

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

  • I4-15-14Kellysigns.jpg GC Volleyball: Kerens' Kelly signs with Paris Junior College

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
