University High’s resume includes an impressive win over Happy Valley and undefeated in league play. But they won’t be adding Johnson County to their list.
The Lady Longhorns defeated them 8-3 on Monday at Bob Kirksey Field. It was a good win over a quality opponent according to head coach Dana Smith.
“This girls are playing well together,” said Smith about her Lady Longhorns. “Our defense and pitching has been very good. They’re hitting the ball well and staying focused. They also pull for one another.”
One player hotter than a firecracker is Cindy Edington She pitched a complete game three-hitter with five strikeouts and no walks to earn the win. She also let her bat do the talking.
Edington singled in the first inning, then scored on an RBI double by Jayme Jennings. She would deliver the fatal blow three innings later that broke the game open.
Mollie Cohee’s run scoring double tied the game for UH in the third. But the ‘Horns would get it back in the bottom half.
Abby Reece singled, stole second and score on Hope Nelson’s two-bagger. They would pad their cushion in the fourth.
Brianna Snyder opened the frame with a single then scored on Kelsey Duperry’s double. Edington drove home another run with a single giving Johnson County a 4-2 advantage.
UH caught a break in the fifth inning. Ari Ramsaran led off with a double and later scored when Reece and Michala Cretsinger collided while trying to chase down a fly ball.

Yet they regrouped in the bottom half and put the game away with one huge swing of the bat.
Demi Blevins got it started by smacking a home run well over the fence for a 5-3 lead. Meghan — Edington
