Freshman earns win, Pitts leads the offense for No. 17 Huskies


No. 17 Patterson Mill High sent Madison Knight to the circle on Monday to face Rising Sun, giving the promising freshman a chance to rebound off of her first loss and she rose to the task in a 9-3 win over Rising Sun, in UCBAC softball action.

Knight went the distance, allowing only one earned run on three hits, while walking just one and striking out seven.

The Huskies were highlighted offensively by Dakota Pitts, who went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, and a Sac fly. She also scored a run. Allie Cichocki added a 3-for-4 performance with a double, a run scored and an RBI, while Mackenzie Horton and Caroline Michaels both went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI.
