PROCTORVILLE — The Fairland Lady Dragons just need to put the top and bottom together to make one whole lineup.

Although the bottom of the order was hitting well, the top of the order struggled in a 6-3 loss to the Huntington Lady Highlanders on Tuesday.

“We had a lot of hitting at the bottom of the order, but we haven’t been hitting at the top of the order and that hurt us,” said Fairland coach Joe Auxier.

Fairland (2-5) had 11 hits with Chelsey Stanley and Chandler Fulks each going 2-4 with a run batted in.

Freshman Allison Shepherd made her first start for the Lady Dragons and worked four innings. She struck out eight, walked five and hit a batter. Molly Morris finished up.

Rachel Bias got the win for Huntington. Bias gave up 11 hits, but she struck out 14 and did not walk a batter.
