Claremore beats Tahlequah again

CLAREMORE — For the second time in eight days, Claremore handed Tahlequah a loss on the softball diamond. The Lady Zebras beat Tahlequah 4-3 on Thursday.

Tahlequah raced out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning on a solo home run by Whitney Wright and a two-run home run by Kortney Dry. But that was all the offense Tahlequah would get.

Claremore would come up with runs in the first and second innings before plating two runs in the fourth on run-scoring hits by Madison Bright and Stephanie Schivally.

“We didn’t deserve to win,” Tahlequah coach Matt Cloud. “We made too many mistakes against a good team.”

With the win, Claremore (19-6, 10-2) all but clinched the District 5A-3 title. The Lady Zebras would clinch the district crown with a win over East Central on Monday.

Tahlequah will end up finishing second in 5A-3, despite having games against Coweta (on Friday) and Pryor (Monday) left.

“We will still host a regional,” Cloud said, “and I am proud of that.”

With the loss, Tahlequah drops to 28-3 overall and 10-2 in 5A-3.

In the first game, all of Hulbert’s hitters had at least one hit, including Ashlyn Riley and Lauren Reagan who both had two hits. In the second game, Riley finished with two hits again.
