Behind solid pitching and a surge of power at the plate, host Highland Park shut out W.T. White 10-0 to complete a sweep of its Class 6A Region II bi-district playoff series on Saturday.
Katie Bell pitched another gem, striking out five and allowing no runs for the second consecutive game, while Sunny Bowden hit two doubles and drove in two runs.
“We’re pretty deep, but not at pitcher,” said HP head coach Meredith Townsend. “Katie is our ace, and just like Thursday, she threw another great game.”
Bell pitched a one-hitter in Thursday’s 5-0 victory, and allowed just three hits on Saturday for her second shutout in three days.
