NARUNA, Va. — The Chatham softball team used a seven-run, third inning, to cruise to a 15–4 victory over William Campbell in Dogwood District action Thursday night.

Senior Caroline Vicks got the big frame started with a two-run double to left field that scored freshman Nicole Emerson and junior Abigail Owen and gave Chatham a 4–0 lead. Freshman Anna Whitlow pushed the ‘Cavs’ lead to five with her double that scored Vicks and junior Alyssa Terry’s plated Whitlow and freshman Trinity Custer with a double of her own to make it a seven-run contest. The Cavaliers got creative from there, using a double steal from Terry and sophomore Madison Rogers to bring home Terry with the inning’s sixth run and junior Abigail Tiffany’s RBI sacrifice fly on the same at-bat brought home the final run and gave Chatham a 9–0 lead heading into the bottom of the third inning.

Owen, Vicks and Terry led the ‘Cavs with a pair of RBIs apiece. Emerson smacked a game-high four hits, while Owen, Whitlow and Custer each chipped in with a pair of hits as well. Emerson, Whitlow and Tiffany drove in a run apiece.

Custer got the win in the circle, striking out seven and scattering four hits in six innings pitched.

CHATHAM, Va. — Chatham’s baseball team kept its winning ways alive, defeating William Campbell 11–3 in Dogwood District action Thursday night to remain unbeaten on the season.

William Campbell hung with Chatham in the opening frames, finding itself facing a 2–1 deficit heading into the bottom of the fourth. That’s where the Cavaliers changed the narrative, breaking open the tight affair with a nine-run frame.

Chatham took a 3–1 lead courtesy of a William Campbell miscue on senior Dixon Erwin’s ground ball that plated freshman Kennen Lewis and sophomore Jacob Moore increased the ‘Cavs’ advantage to four with his double to center field that scored Erwin and sophomore Carrington Aaron. Another Generals miscue on senior Matthew Arnold’s grounder pushed the Cavaliers’ lead to five and Lewis, batting for the second time in the frame, made it an 8–1 contest with bases-loaded walk. Freshman Alex Van Pelt followed by earning an RBI the hard way with a bases-loaded, hit-by-pitch and Erwin finished off the inning with a two-run single to center that gave Chatham an 11–1 cushion.

Erwin, Moore and junior Cameron Satterfield each led the ‘Cavs with a pair of RBIs each. Lewis and Van Pelt recorded an RBI apiece as well.

Arnold turned in a one-run, three-hit performance over four innings, while also striking out three. Moore gave up a run and struck out two over an inning pitched, while senior Logan Nichols finished off the final two innings, giving up three hits and a run, while striking out two.
