Northern High School
Person High School
The Northern Softball team got a huge road win Friday defeating Person 8-2. Hannah Morris pitched 4 innings giving up 2 runs and McKenzie McCullen came on in the 5th to save the game and shut down the Rockets.
Sarah Pleasants was 2-4 with a RBI, McKenzie McCullen was a HR away from batting for the cycle with 3 RBIs, and Hannah Morris had 2 Doubles and 2 RBIs.Three other Knights had hits in the win. Northern used a combination of aggressive baserunning, timely hitting, and great defense (Shout out to Kelcey Tippett) to remain undefeated in the Piedmont Athletic Conference with 3 games remaining.
Northern’s schedule gets tough with tied for second place East Chapel Hill visiting Tuesday, a late season non-conference road game at Western Alamance on Friday, and finishing the regular season off with two games against tied for second place Cardinal Gibbons in the final week of the regular season.
