Tuesday afternoon was a wild one for Western North Carolina Athletic Conference softball.
Queens recruit Callie Kuykendall pitched a complete game six-hitter for Pisgah (12-3, 7-1), which is again the first-place team in the WNCAC following a 4-1 win at Franklin.
Kuykendall surrendered one earned run, six hits and one walk. She had three strikeouts.
At the plate, Shelby Tomassi was 1-2 and Nadia Hudson went 1-3.
Kaylee Corbin (2-3 with an RBI) and Mississippi State recruit Madison Cousineau did the most damage for the Panthers, who fall to 9-4 overall and 7-2 in the WNCAC.
Pisgah can partly thank West Henderson for its return to first place.
Laurel Koontz, who was the 2014 WNCAC Pitcher of the Year, hurled a 16-strikeout game Tuesday in Henderson County. And the Falcons (9-6, 3-5) clipped Smoky Mountain (10-2, 6-2) by a 3-2 score.
Koontz did not allowed any earned runs. She gave out eight hits and two walks. Koontz also hit a home run and Kristen Gass was 1-3 with the winning run.
Katie Fortner went 3-5 at the plate for the Mustangs. Smoky Mountain was No. 1 in the most recent MaxPreps computer-generated state rankings for NCHSAA 2-A softball.
