Cheatham hosted White House-Heritage last Tuesday as the Lady Cubs were able to score three runs in the third inning to defeat the Lady Patriots 3-1.

Katelyn Sisco got the start for Cheatham and Brynna Hinshaw started for White House-Heritage. Neither pitcher surrendered much of anything until the Lady Cubs did break through with their only three runs of the game.

Macie Harter led off the inning with a single and she then made her way to second after a groundout. Sydney Crouch then brought in Harter with a double down the left field line to break the scoreless tie.

Crouch was able to advance to third after Sisco singled to the left side of the infield. With runners at first and third, Cheatham’s Georgia Hunter delivered what would be the game-winning hit as she doubled into the right-center field gap allowed Crouch and Sisco to score. That would be all the scoring Cheatham could muster but it would end up being more than enough.

White House-Heritage did answer in the top of the fourth inning when Hayden Duff doubled to right field bringing in Annie Dill as Dill had reached on a single earlier in the inning.

Sisco would finish the game for the Lady Cubs with three strikeouts over seven innings. She allowed five hits and no walks along with the one run.

White House-Heritage's Hinshaw struck out six over six innings and allowed three runs on eight hits.

“I think Sisco is finally coming into the pitcher we all know she can be,” Cheatham coach Jahcenda Garrett said. “We had timely hits when we needed them, and our defense played well. I am really excited to see the girls continue playing like this into the postseason.”

Cheatham would finish the week with wins over Fairview, Houston County and East Robertson. The Lady Cubs defeated Fairview 12-1 on Thursday and then defeated Houston County 4-1 and East Robertson 8-6 on Friday. Cheatham did lose to Jo Byrns 5-4 on Saturday.
