STANHOPE — Freshman pitcher Anna Dickinson was nearly perfect for the Southern Nash High softball team Thursday night, as the Ladybirds topped Roanoke Rapids 5-0 in the 2-A/3A Big East Conference Championship game.
Dickinson allowed just one hit on the night, and only faced one batter above the minimum as she struck out 19 Yellowjackets (17-3) batters as the Ladybirds (19-2) solidified themselves as the regular season and conference tournament champions of the Big East.
After the teams battled through a scoreless first two innings, Southern Nash broke the game open with a four-run bottom of the third.
After Savanna Baines reached on a throwing error, McKenna Batten and Kaylie Love both singled to load the bases. Ariel Perry then drove in a run with a grounder, Dickinson wore a pitch and Addison Brumfield drove in a run with a fielder’s choice and Dickinson scored on a wild pitch.
Southern Nash will host a first round state playoff game Tuesday night.
