SPRING HILL - Summit's Cheyenne Scott hit all of the right spots in a dominant, one-hit performance on Monday in a 15-0 win over the Overton Lady Bobcats in the Region 6 AAA semifinals. 

"We're proud of Cheyenne, she did a great job today," Summit coach Jenny Stevenson said. "She really hit spots well and did a great job of handling each of their batters. The one hit; oh, if we could that one back." 

Scott pitched four innings and had seven strikeouts to go along with the one hit allowed. She also helped herself a bit by knocking in a run in the fourth, which is where Summit really pulled away.

"We challenge them to play the same way no matter who the competition is. We didn't know Overton and sometimes you get fired up to play your rivals, [but not always for a team you don't know]."

The Lady Spartans started slow, not scoring in the first inning, but they found their footing in the second inning with four runs. The first runs of the game came from Morgan Woodside, who hit a two-RBI single.

Summit added two more runs in the third inning thanks to an RBI single by McKinley Jackson, who scored the sixth run by advancing to home on a wild pitch.

The fourth inning is really where the game broke open for Summit, as the Lady Spartans piled on nine more runs in the inning. 

"I'm really proud of how they hit,” Stevenson said. “It took a minute for them to adjust, but they're athletes so they adjusted and started hitting the ball hard." 

The Lady Spartans finished with 16 hits -- including four doubles, two triples and a two-run home-run by Carly Scott.

Summit will play in Friday's sectional game no matter the result of Wednesday's region championship against Dickson County, and Stevenson was incredibly happy that Summit will have a chance at hosting it once again.
