Sophomore Terin Teeter scattered six hits and four walks, and the top of the order helped ignite the offense in a 7-0 victory for the Glenwood girls softball team over SHG last Saturday in the championship game of the Class 3A Taylorville Regional.
Teeter (14-6, 1.48 ERA) allowed five singles and a double, striking out eight and walking four. She threw 117 pitches, 81 for strikes.
“She was dealing with some things, and she executed and made pitches,” Glenwood head coach Vondel Edgar stated. “She got in a couple scrapes early, and was able to make enough pitches to get out of it. She has the ability to strike people out, and if not, she can execute and we can make plays, which we have been doing the last couple of weeks.”
Glenwood (21-9) had seven hits off Jolie Robertson, who walked three in six innings of work. Robertson also hit two batters.
The Titans jumped in front quickly, with six runs in the first three innings. GHS did not commit an error, while SHG had two. The Titans made fewer mistakes than the Cyclones did, as Edgar noted.
“I think that’s what it came down to,” he stated. “The first couple of games against them, I think it had a bearing in it also. Our experience helps in these games. The way we’ve been practicing and putting things together and concentrating - it’s been fun to see a lot of growth. We’ve come a long ways, and for them to be rewarded with a regional is pretty satisfying.”
