CHS beats rain en route to MacArthur rout


The Fightin' Chicks were faced with a bit of extra work to make their 13-0 run-ruled win over Lawton-MacArthur happen on Monday.

A morning of constant rain left Elliott Field wet and waterlogged by the time Chickasha made their way out at 1:30 p.m. Four hours later, the team had it looking good as ever, almost as if they had set the table for the meal of runs they were about to enjoy.

It is the fifth win in the last six games for Chickasha (18-8, 9-2), who are reaching the business end of the season with one district series against Noble remaining in the calendar once the return game against MacArthur is done Tuesday night.

Chickasha took an early lead through Luke Dixon’s leadoff double in the first. Cade Morris stepped up for an RBI-single to right. He was later brought in by Henderson’s RBI-single to the opposite side for a 2-0 lead right from the start.

It all blew wide open in the third inning. Dixon led things off again, this time with a triple. It didn’t take long for Brooks Bush, second in the order, to bring him around on a single, the beginning of a big inning.

Derek Sullivan and Brandon Womack brought in two more and, as a result, helped set up a loaded bases opportunity for Brandon Shumway. He had already flow out to left fielder Deion James’ diving grab in the second, a bright moment for a Highladers team that had an otherwise difficult afternoon.

So the second time around, Shumway made it count. The lefty pulled one over right field and to the fence, enough to bring three base runners in and earn a double. Chickasha batted around in the third inning and by the end had an 8-0 lead.
