It was a busy week for the Lady Indians softball team of Vidalia High School as they took on Brantley County on Monday, hosted Tattnall County on Thursday, and then took on rival Toombs County at home on Saturday morning. VHS won all three of those Region games as they moved into first place in the Region 3AA. vs. Brantley
Emma Vinson hit her first home run of the year, and Tymber Harris hit her fourth while striking out nine Brantley County batters as the Lady Indians hammered the Lady Herons 13-1 Monday evening in Vidalia. With the win, the Lady Indians won their 7th straight game and improved their record to 11-6 and 6-2 in Region 3AA.
Vinson’s homerun, the 16th of the year for the Lady Indians, came in the bottom of the first inning with 1-out after Deidre Boston led the inning off with a single to make the score 2-0. Vinson ended the day three for three, including two doubles and four RBIs.
The Lady Indians exploded for seven runs in the 2nd inning and four more in the bottom of the 3rd to seal the deal as Harris worked a one-hitter while allowing one unearned run. Boston and Emma Humphrey also had a three-for-three day, with Boston garnering three singles and Humphrey contributing two singles, a double, and 2 RBIs. vs. Tattnall
Emma Humphrey drove in four runs on three hits, including her teamleading 8th home run, and Tymber Harris threw a no-hitter while striking out 13 Tattnall County batters as the Vidalia Lady Indians rolled over the Lady Warriors 8-0 Thursday evening in Vidalia.
The win, on senior night, is the 8th straight for Vidalia and moved the Lady Indians to 12-6 on the year and 7-2 in Region 3AA. “I am really proud to get the win on senior night and give ourselves an opportunity to continue to battle for a region championship,” said Vidalia Head Coach Ben Beck.
Four seniors, including Humphrey and Harris, along with Emma Vinson and Braylie Carey, were celebrated after the game for their contributions to the program, and Beck talked with pride when speaking about the group. “The seniors have done an awesome job leading this team and keeping a positive outlook. They stayed on target and helped keep everyone focused on our goals when we struggled early in the year. This is a group of girls that love Vidalia Softball and a group that this community can be very proud of, not only for what they accomplish on the field, but who they are as servant leaders.” vs. Toombs
Tymber Harris struck out 15 batters and Emma Vinson went 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs as the Lady Indians knocked off Toombs Co. 4-0 Saturday morning in Vidalia.
The Lady Indians scored their first run in the bottom of the 4th inning when Vinson singled to left field to score Deidre Boston, who led off the inning with a triple to give Vidalia a 1-0 lead.
It was the only run Harris needed as she shut down Toombs allowing just 2 base runners the rest of the way on a dropped third strike and an error. The 15 K’s ran the senior’s total to 212 on the year, while allowing just 7 earned runs through 111 innings.
Vidalia got three more runs in the bottom of the 6th inning to put the game on ice as the Lady Indians moved to 13-6 and 8-2 in Region 3AA play.
This week the Indians were at Toombs County on Tuesday after presstime for a game that could decide the Region Championship. They will be back at home on Thursday to face Appling County at 6:00 p.m. and then will host Pierce County on Friday at 6:00 p.m.
