Three months ago, the Bishop Kearney girls basketball team ended Red Jacket’s season with a win in the sectional semifinals. The Indians returned the favor in softball, with an 8-2 win Thursday in the Section 5 Class C2 quarterfinals.
“I know everyone who played basketball really wanted to get revenge on them and win,” Indians second baseman Emily Hotchkiss said. “It was big for us to beat them.”
Red Jacket pitcher Carlye Capron went the distance, striking out four and walking two, while allowing just three hits and no earned runs — and the offense combined to hit two home runs and steal 10 bases. Chelsey Jacobs went 2 for 4 with an RBI, two runs scored and three stolen bases, Hotchkiss and Bailey Hixson both homered, and Meghan Gerlock swiped three bases.
