With pitcher Brianna Tolar leading the way, Davie’s JV softball team stunned visiting East Forsyth 3-2 on April 15. The win broke a three-game losing streak.

“We have turned it around; they are starting to play better ball,” varsity coach Nathan Handy said.

The first meeting did not go down as an official game, but it’s worth noting that East raced to a 13-0 lead in the first inning and a half. Then rain came and the rest of the game was washed out.

In this one, Davie scored twice in the bottom of the third, Tolar put up her third zero in the top of the fourth and Davie walked away victorious.

“Bri has done a great job on the mound,” Handy said. “For any freshman, it takes a few games to settle in. Her shoulder was hurting her at the beginning of the year, and hopefully we have gotten past that point. She’s doing well.”

Notes: The War Eagles, however, dropped the last three games of the season. They lost 19-3 to visiting Forbush, 13-0 at West Forsyth and 7-5 at East Wilkes. “We struggle for offense sometimes,” Handy said. … Davie’s final record was 4-6-1.
