The host Highlanders are coming off a 15-8 win over William Byrd on Monday as Haden Henderson had two hits and drove in three runs while Cam Feazell and Alex Pannell had three hits each.
Glenvar tied Christiansburg last week, 6-6. Lewis improved to 4-7 on the season with a 12-6 win over Cave Spring at Billy Sample Field Monday. The win avenged a prior 10-3 loss to the Squires. Things started off bad again as Cave Spring scored four runs in the first inning, but the Wolverines battled back with two runs in the second, three runs in the third, and a monstrous seven-run inning in the fourth to claim a 12-6 victory. Ian Stump had four RBIs to lead the charge. It was the third win in a row for the Wolverines, who beat Blacksburg, 11-1, and Northside, 13-8, last week.
Today’s softball game will be played at 5 pm at the Salem Civic Center. Lewis knocked Blacksburg from the ranks of the undefeated last week with a 22-8 win and then whipped Northside, 20-9, to even their record at 6-6 for the season.
