East Carter (Grayson, Ky.) was eliminated from the Kentucky state high school softball tournament late Friday night, but you can’t blame the effort put in by American Family Insurance ALL-USA High School pitcher Montana Fouts.
Fouts, a junior Alabama commit, threw a whopping 451 pitches in four games Friday and was named to the all-tournament team. That follows her throwing a one-hitter with 13 strikeouts in a 9-0 victory against Collins on Thursday night.
To run down the day: East Carter lost 1-0, to South Warren in eight innings to move to the consolation bracket. The Raiders beat Boyle County 4-0, held on to beat Woodford County 3-2 and then lost 4-2 to Owensboro Catholic.
The Raiders finished 36-5 on the season and 3-2 in the state tournament.
The state championship game is Saturday.
