Davie’s JV softball team dominated the first week of the season, winning 9-1 at Starmount on Feb. 27 and 12-1 at South Iredell on March 1.

“We’ve got a couple of young ladies out there that have not played a lot of softball,” first-year coach Mike Foster said. “They are paying attention and buying into the program. I think they’re doing an excellent job.”

Chloe Smith will be Davie’s No. 1 pitcher this season. She threw a complete game against S. Iredell.

“She deserves a lot of the credit,” Foster said. “Once she gets settled in and comfortable, she does really well.”

Foster has also been pleased with his leadoff batter, Ava Tomlinson.

“Ava has done really well for us,” he said. “She’s probably got the highest on-base percentage. When the leadoff can get on base, that starts the whole system because morale is up and everybody is full of energy.”
