The Glenvar softball team will take on long-time rival James River on Friday at home. The Knights are 3-1, having lost for the first time last weekend when they were edged by Liberty in the “Botetourt Bash” at the Botetourt Sports Complex.
Glenvar is 4-3 after opening the season 4-1. The Highlanders dropped a 7-3 decision at Hidden Valley last week. The Eagles jumped on starter Abby Schoonover early but Emily Teaford came in to quiet the storm, and also hit her second home run of the season. However, it wasn’t enough as the Titans held on for the win.
“It was one of those games that we hit the ball hard but right at them,” said Glenvar coach Rick Street.
On Tuesday at Auburn Glenvar was shut out, 9-0, by the Eagles. Glenvar had just two hits, one each by Olivia Adams and Emily Anderson. The Highlanders struck out 15 times.
“Auburn’s pitcher was good, but not that good,” said Street. “We have a young team and we still have a lot of work to do.”
