IMPERIAL — The Imperial High School softball team hammered Antelope High of Welton, Ariz., 25-0 in five innings Wednesday.
Picking up the win for Imperial was Lindsay Lugo as she pitched all five innings, striking out eight and giving up only one hit. Lugo finished 2-for-3 at the plate with four runs and an RBI.
Leading the Tiger offense, which scored 14 in the first frame, was Andrea Thompson, who went 3-for-5 with two home runs, four runs and four RBIs. Serena Item went 2-for-3 with a run for Imperial (2-0 overall). Every Tiger player finished with at least one hit.
Said Tiger coach Kim Witte: "After having a few games rained out last week we were ready to start hitting. In a game like this it's easy for a team to not concentrate, but our girls stayed disciplined at the plate, which I was happy with."
