PH Softball Rolls, Baseball Falls Short.....

After losing their first game of the season to Hanover Wednesday, Patrick Henry returned to Colonial District play Friday at Douglas Freeman and wasted no time getting back on track. The Patriots scored nine runs in the first inning en route to a 16-0, 5-inning win over the Rebels.

Emma Mitchell struck out ten while her battery-mate, catcher Madison Gilman, went 4-for-4. Patrick Henry, now 11-0 in the Colonial, 14-1 overall, step out of District again Monday with a trip to Hopewell. Then, Wednesday night, Dinwiddie, one of the top five teams in the Central Region, comes to Ashland for a possible playoff preview.


Meanwhile, the Patriots' baseball team's woes continue, falling short at Douglas Freeman 4-3. Patrick Henry scored all three of their runs in the fifth inning. The Rebels scored one in the sixth, then plated three in the bottom of the seventh for the comeback win. The heartbreaking loss puts the Patriots at 7-5 in the Colonial, 9-7 overall.
