Lady Indians clinch share of FAC title


She’s the best, most dominating pitcher in the Frontier Athletic Conference.

Hillsboro junior Camryn Spruell has led Hillsboro to at least a share of the 2024 FAC championship after pitching a one-hit 14-0 shutout Tuesday at Miami Trace.

Hillsboro is 8-0 in the conference with two games left.

Jackson is 4-2 in the FAC with two conference games remaining against Miami Trace and two against Chillicothe.

Spruell was in control Tuesday, striking out 12 batters in the five-inning game. She has a record of 14-1 and an earned run average of 0.74, less than one earned run allowed per every seven innings pitched.

Miami Trace had one hit, a single by Dylaney Templin in the fourth inning. A wild pitch allowed another Miami Trace batter to reach base and a second wild pitch in the same inning put runners at second and third for Miami Trace where they were stranded.

Kaylee Everhart pitched five innings with 10 hits, 14 runs (five earned), four walks and six strikeouts for Miami Trace.

Mylea Fridley, Addie Huff and Reagan Clemons each had two hits for Hillsboro. Huff hit a triple, drove in three runs and scored twice. Fridley knocked in one run and scored twice and Clemons had two RBI and scored three runs. Halle Reveal, Eowyn Brown and Chloe Roberts each had one hit for Hillsboro. Reveal scored one run and drove in one, as did Brown and Roberts scored one run with two RBI.

Opposing teams are batting just .111 against Spruell. She has 237 strikeouts and 28 walks in 104.1 innings pitched. Said another way, she has a strikeout to walks ratio of almost 12-1.

She can also slug with the best of them, sporting a .473 batting average, nine home runs and 32 RBI. She batted .605 last season with 12 home runs and 50 RBI. Spruell uncharacteristically did not have a hit against Miami Trace. She was 0 for 1 with three walks and two runs scored.

Hillsboro is now 16-2 overall with two conference games remaining with McClain Monday and Tuesday.

Miami Trace is now 4-9 overall, 2-4 in the FAC.
