The young Logan County Lady Cougar softball team has put together quite a run over the last month. Brandy Trimble’s team only lost three games in April, while winning ten. A one-run loss at Franklin-Simpson ended a six-game winning streak on May 3rd. During the streak, the Lady Cougars outscored their opponents 51-9. The 3-2 loss to Franklin did not seem to bother Logan County. They beat Hopkinsville 5-1 on Thursday and shocked the (14-8) Greenwood Lady Gators 5-0 on Friday.

The Lady Cougars (14-9) got on the board in the bottom of the first when Torrie Pollard singled in Kaylin Page to go up 1-0. Page would also score the second run of the game in the bottom of the third, this time on a single by Kennedy Nichols. Logan County put up another score in the fourth on a single by the pitcher, Abby Hinton. The Lady Cougars defense would help Hinton hold the 3-0 lead until the offense added the final two runs in the bottom of the sixth. Pollard hit another RBI single and eventually came in to score the fifth run.

Logan County piled up 14 hits on the Gator pitching. Torrie Pollard went 4 for 4 with two RBIs. Kaylin Page, Brea Croslin, Kennedy Nichols, and Presley Harris each had two hits.

Abby Hinton threw the complete game shut out. She struck out two and only allowed two hits. Hinton now has 59 strikeouts on the season.

The Lady Cougars will be on the road for the rest of the season. They face the (14-8) Lady Eagles from Ohio County on Tuesday.
