WEST JEFFERSON — When the North Surry softball team wins this season, the Lady Hounds win big.
North Surry trounced Ashe County 15-0 on Monday, improving its record to 4-3 on the year. In the Lady Hounds’ four victories this season, they are winning by an average victory margin of 10.75 runs.
On Monday, a balanced offensive attack propelled North Surry to the blowout. Ten different Lady Hounds scored a run as North Surry scored seven in the first inning, one run in the second and another seven-spot in the top of the third.
Whitney Hall, Cidney Fulk, Lee’a Hiatt, Drew Beamer and Evann Shelnutt each scored twice on Monday for North Surry. Hiatt and Callie Younger each went 3-3 on the day.
The Lady Hounds also did a ton of damage on the base-paths, recording 22 steals as a team against the Huskies.
Beamer earned the win as North Surry’s pitcher, striking out five Ashe County batters in her three innings of work. Beamer only allowed three hits and one walk in a clean performance.
Monday was North Surry’s second blowout victory over Ashe this season. The Hounds defeated the Huskies 12-2 on Thursday.
North Surry will now look to keep this momentum rolling throughout the remainder of the week. The Lady Hounds have two road games on the horizon, traveling to North Stokes on Wednesday and Reagan on Thursday before Spring Break hits the Surry County School System.
