After suffering a pair of losses in the Winston County Classic on Saturday, the Nanih Waiya slow-pitch softball team bounced back in

fine facing with a solid 8-5 win over Kosciusko on Monday night.
NW hit for five runs in the bottom of the first inning against the visiting Lady Whippets and then were able to hold off a late charge by Kosy to take the win.
KHS cut it to 6-5, but Nanih Waiya responded with a pair of runs to put the game away and to improve to 1-2 on the season.
Marlee Parkes blasted a triple and two doubles in the game to lead NW, while Hope Thames had a pair of doubles, Brantlie Sheets popped a two-bagger and Tia Amos had a big hit.
The Lady Warriors, who were playing short three starters, fell to Louisville 8-6 and Noxapater 11-10 on Saturday in the Winston County Classic.
“We were missing three starters, but that’s not why we lost,” said NW head coach Ron Swart. We made a few mistakes and that is what cost us. We didn’t get a chance to play in a jamboree the week before because it was rained out, so this was our first time in actual competition this year and it showed a little.”
Thames had four hits to lead the Lady Warriors on Saturday, while Krysten Eaves and Allayna Lovorn were both strong at the plate for NW in the tournament.
