No hitters, one hitters, are second nature to junior Chloe Temples who is the ace for Marianna softball. Coach Scott Wiggins is quick to give credit to his team, “They make me look good. I’ve got a talented group of players who give it everything.” Last week when the Lady Bulldogs traveled to Tallahassee to take on Rickards, Temples was perfect in the 16-0 shutout. She allowed no runs on no hits, no walks, and no errors while fanning eight of the nine batters she faced in three innings of work. The game was called on the mercy rule, 15 run-lead after three innings.
Marianna’s 16 runs came off six hits, four errors, two hit batters and 12 walks.
Reaching base on a hit were Chloe Temples, Gabby Bess, Kennedy Harris, Ashtyn Jeter, Brayden Williams and Lauren Brock.
Taking one for the team were Deana Holland and Sydnee Goodson with Lauren Brock, Deana Holland, Chloe Temples, Gabby Bess, Sydnee Goodson, Kennedy Harris, Ashtyn Jeter, Anni Beebe and Jayden Sorey all drawing walks.
