Three Sandites hit home runs, two had triples, and two had doubles Tuesday afternoon in Ponca City as the Charles Page High School softball team (2-0, 1-0) notched their first district win of the season, 11-1 against the Wildcats (1-1, 0-1).
Senior standout Sabrina Usher went four-for-four at the plate, leading the team in hits with a single, a double, a triple, and a homer for two runs and five RBI.
Felicity Horn hit the first home run of the season in the first at-bat of the game, followed by back-to-back triples from Madison Lee and Usher. Usher scored on a passed ball for the 3-0 first inning lead. Mackenzie Bechtold reached on a passed ball in the second inning and Horn doubled. Both came in on a homer from Lee.
Usher hit a three-run homer in the fourth to score Horn and Lee. Jaden Jordan and Makenna Skaggs singled, then Skaggs stole third and scored on a fielder’s choice to make it 10-1. Usher batted in Lee in the fifth for the final run of the game.
The Wildcats’ lone run came on a third inning error. Aliyah Taff (2-0, 6-6) got the win on the mound with five hits, six strikeouts, and one walk. She struck out three in the bottom of the fifth to strand two runners and secure the run-rule victory.
The Sandites will return to action Thursday at home when they host Bartlesville (0-1) in a 5:30 p.m. non-district game.
