Jim Walker



SOUTH POINT — It’s been a nice ride so far and the South Point Lady Pointers like being in the driver’s seat,

South Point beat the Rock Hill Redwomen 4-0 on Wednesday and improved to 15-3 overall and 7-1 in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Kaitlyn Brown threw a three-hitter with five strikeouts as the Lady Pointers took over sole possession of the OVC.

“This was a very fast-paced game. We got the hits when we needed them and took advantage of some of their mistakes,” said Lady Pointers coach Tanner Heaberlin.

“Kaitlyn Brown threw another terrific game and we played lights out defense. In both Rock Hill games this year we’ve had zero errors, and when we play defense we can play with anyone. We control our own destiny.”

After a scoreless first inning, the Lady Pointers got two runs in the second.

Sylvia Griffith tripled and scored when Andi Kleinman reached on an error. Halie Powell singled and an error scored a run.

South Point got two more runs in the third.

Bri Whaley doubled, Haley Rawlins was safe on an error, Kleinman grounded out to score Whaley and a wild pitch scored Rawlins.

Griffith was 2-3 as South Point had eight hits.
