Lady Maroons survive Casey in pitching duel

Apr. 9—Pulaski, fresh off a 1-1 tournament at Elizabethtown, were back at their home field for the first time in two weeks on Monday evening, welcoming in the Casey County Lady Rebels for a 47th District showdown. Despite the Lady Maroons being a strong offensive team, it was a pitching duel for most of the evening's contest, with Pulaski being able to take away a 2-0 victory.

Bella Ellis and Brooklyn Thomas each batted in one RBI for the Maroons, with Ryann Sowder also adding a hit. Thomas was dominant on the mound, throwing 101 pitches in a complete game shutout, allowing just two hits and three walks with 12 strikeouts.

Pulaski improves to 8-4 on the season and 1-0 in district play, with a road game at Casey County on Tuesday before returning home on Thursday to square off with Taylor County.
