The Lady Leopards rebounded from a loss earlier in the week to top ranked Eustis High School to shutout county rival Springstead High School. Freshmen Carolanne McClelland led the Purple and Gold going 3-4 at the plate including a double and her first homerun of her career in a Leopard uniform. Senior Olivia Townsend also got to trot around the bases with her second homerun of the season. Hannah Taylor and Annabelle Chinetti also collected two hits on the evening for the Lady Leopards.
Savannah Ellis picked up the win on the mound going the distance and striking out seven Lady Eagles as Hernando now stands at 16-2 on the season. Ellis also drove in three runs with a double and a sacrifice fly. The Lady Leopards will host Central next Tuesday in a 7 PM start.
