The Elmore County Panthers, fresh off a 5-1 prowl through a highly competitive Brew Tech tournament brought that momentum back to Eclectic and hung six on the visiting Wetumpka Indians in the second inning of Monday’s meeting.
The Panthers picked up the 10-2 victory due in large part to Anna Catherine Segrest’s decision to have herself a day. Segrest drove in four runs on three hits (a run-scoring double in the second and run-scoring double in the third). Ashtyn Panel and Mackenzie Smith joined Segrest in having extra-base hits. Kelley Green and Smith also drove runs home in the win.
Ashtyn Pannell, Maci Curell, Madison Britt and Segrest were all a big part of the six-run second.
University of Montevallo commit Aubrey Allen recorded the win for the Panthers, striking out 11 over seven innings of work.
For the Indians Mya Holt was saddled with the loss, throwing 84 pitches over two and two-thirds innings of work. Ashley Burgess and Ella Watson came on in relief.
Wetumpka was a combined 5-for-27 against Allen with Ashlynn Campbell accounting for three hits. Holt had the Indians’ only RBI.
Elmore County travels to Dadeville on Thursday. Wetumpka turns around and plays host to Holtville Tuesday afternoon and then travels to Prattville on Thursday before spending the weekend at the Auburn Invitational.
