Orioles swinging away

AVON — The Avon Orioles’ bats were swinging Monday night.

Avon notched 17 hits en route to an 8-0 victory against rival Brownsburg in the opening round of Hendricks County Softball Tournament.

The Orioles tallied 13 hits within the first three innings as they built a 6-0 lead.

“It’s hard to get a hit every time but it’s not hard to put the ball in play every time when you’re a varsity player,” Avon coach Jenny Shayotovich said. “We’ve really tried to work on understanding situations and being able to make good decisions at the plate.”

After leaving a lot of runners on base in its first slate of games, Avon did a better job managing that aspect against Brownsburg.

“It was nice to see,” Shayotovich said. “We’ve hit the ball fairly well but we’ve left a lot of runners on, so we’ve really been working on executing and just focusing on hitting. I thought we did such a better job not leaving runners stranded and doing our job.”

The Bulldogs struggled with their cohesion throughout the evening.

“It was a combination tonight of just not having everything working at the same time,” Brownsburg coach Alyssa Huffman said. “When we would get a little something going with the bats and our pitchers came out putting us in a good position, we weren’t able to back it up defensively. When we had the defense, we couldn’t get the offense. Just couldn’t get everything firing at the same time.”

Senior Taylar Kelso drove in the first run of the game in the first inning for Avon on a single. Seniors Sadie Foster and Lizzy Snodgrass each contributed an RBI in the second inning for a 3-0 Orioles lead.

Avon then doubled their scoring in the third when Cassidy Larkin, Hannah Goddard and Mackenzie Johnston each brought runners in to score.
