Kaylee Owens

IAHS's Kaylee Owens reaches base after getting hit by a pitch just above the knee. The junior reached base five times in the Lady Indians two games against Caledonia last week. 

It’s early in the division 2-4A schedule, but every series is important. Winning at home is important.

The Itawamba Agricultural High School Lady Indians hosted the Caledonia Cavaliers in a crucial division matchup on Tuesday. The Lady Cavaliers wasted no time in the opening inning. Thanks to three singles, Caledonia jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. IAHS couldn’t get their offense going as they went 3-up 3-down in the opening inning.

In the third inning, a few singles and a Lady Indian error allowed Caledonia to extend their lead to 4-0.

In the fourth, junior Chloe McClain finally broke the scoring drought with a home run, to bring IAHS within 5-1. McClain wasn’t finished as she got another RBI in the 5th on a double. However, Caledonia just steadily singled its way to the 7-2 division victory.
