Roundup: Floyd Central shows offensive potential

Floyd Central flexed its offensive muscle in Tuesday’s season opener.

The Highlanders plated 16 runs en route to a six-run win over Pleasure Ridge Park Tuesday in Louisville. Freshman Taryn Weddle, a Louisville commit, went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and four RBIs, while Cassie Thomerson went 5-for-5 with a double, three runs and three RBIs.

Starting pitcher Lexi Heeke allowed six runs on 11 hits in six and two-thirds innings. But the Highlanders offense helped lift the team, scoring eight runs in the first three innings, four more in the fourth and fifth innings combined and another three runs in the seventh.

Rosie Sullivan went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs, and Makenzie Luckett also drove in three runs, hitting 3-for-4 with two runs scored.

Here’s a look at spring sports action from Tuesday evening:
