Tuttle top Chicks in Grady County clash


When two forces of equal strength meet in sports, something's got to give. Unfortunately for Chickasha softball, it was their record that took another knock as they lost 4-2 to county rivals Tuttle.

The Lady Tigers (18-4) did few things wrong in their match-up against a 5A state title favorite while at the same time casting their name in the ring for the 3A contest. Lauren Kelley led the way, going three-for-three with a run. Pitcher Bailey Saye had a solid night on both sides of the ball, going two-for-three, scoring a run, and turning around to strike out four Lady Chicks batters.

"We've been working hard on making the plays and doing the little things right," Tuttle head coach Jennifer Prince said. "They did a good job today. They got tested in this game, and we want to keep getting tested until the end."

Shorty Clift did her utmost to keep Chickasha (19-4) in the game with a perfect four-for-four from the plate and two stolen bases. Amanda Bradford went two-for-four with a run, while Brighton Gilbert secured the Chicks' other run while going one-for-three.
