East Union rebounds against Myrtle

The Lady Urchins rebounded from a disappointed weekend setback to Mooreville by defeating Myrtle, 7-1, on Tuesday.
After falling 17-0 to Mooreville on Saturday, Stephanie Hardy put East on the board in the first, and behind five hits in the second, the Lady Urchins built a 4-0 lead.
Myrtle’s run came in the sixth inning after the Lady Hawks loaded the bases with two outs and walked in a run.
East Union responded, doing the same in the top of the seventh, loading the bases and scoring on a single by Tianna Castillo and walking in two more runs.
Four Lady Urchins had two hits, Callie Frazier, Ashley Leach, Hardy and Castillo. Emily Cook, Lauren Coggin, Kayla Turner and Amber Cook each had two hits for Myrtle.
East Union will play at Ingomar on Thursday and each of the county schools and New Albany will be in action on Saturday, participating in the Robertson’s Sportswear Tournament at BNA Bank Park.
