PH Sweeps Hermitage and Tuesday Scores!

Paige Mitchell hit a bases loaded triple to break open a tight game, giving Patrick Henry an 8-0 win over Hermitage Tuesday evening, raising the Patriots softball record to 3-0 in the Colonial District, 4-0 overall. Madison Gilman had three hits for the Patriots, while Emma Mitchell struck out 12 Panthers en route to her fourth shutout in as many games.

The Patriots welcome Lee-Davis to Ashland Thursday afternoon. Patrick Henry is the only team to defeat Lee-Davis during the Confederates' 2011 State Championship season. Without pitcher Kelly Heinz, out for the season due to surgery on her pitching arm, Lee-Davis still returns with tremendous potency at the plate and pitching promise. This will be their first game of the year, having already had two games postponed (Matoaca and Hermitage) to later in the season.

Meanwhile, Kyle Palmer pitched a shutout gem leading Patrick Henry baseball to an important 3-0 win at Hermitage. The Patriots are now 2-1 in the Colonial, 3-1 overall. As several prognosticators had seen Patrick Henry battling with Hermitage in the middle of the Colonial District in 2012, the road victory is crucial for the Patriots if they want to challenge the upper echelon teams such as Deep Run and Douglas Freeman.
