The Lynchburg-Clay Lady Mustangs defeated visiting East Clinton, 16-2, in five innings Monday.
“The Lady Mustangs used some timely hitting along with some aggressive base running and aided by some defensive miscues to put the game out of reach,” Lynchburg-Clay coach Chad McConnaughey said.
Sarah McKinney picked up her fourth win of the season, pitching all five innings, striking out five and walking two.
The Lady Mustangs were led offensively by Haleigh Snider with two doubles and a single, one RBI and two runs scored McKinney and Natalie Gray also tallied two hits and two RBIs on the evening.

The Lady Mustangs were travel to Peebles on Tuesday evening for a Southern Hills Athletic Conference matchup.
“We continue to strive to be better every time we step on the diamond.

We have three important league games this week and we hope to stay confident and challenge for victories.”
