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.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''

    Kaylana Dickson got the name Bebop on her way to winning a national title in gymnastics this summer, and boy did it catch fire.
