Senior pitcher Sarah Harness turned in another masterful performance as the Bowling Green Lady ‘Cats improved their record to 3-3 after defeating the Louisiana Lady Bulldogs 7-0.
Fresh off a 15-strikeout outing against Highland High School earlier in the week, Harness fanned 16 more on Friday while allowing just four hits and walking two.
Bowling Green took the lead for good in the bottom of the first inning when Harness helped her own cause by hitting a sacrifice fly into the outfield, which was hit deep enough to allow Gabi Deters to score from third base.
The Lady ‘Cats would add to their advantage on the scoreboard in the same inning when Jade Meier hit her first home run on the season.
Meier’s home run was followed by Grace Dameron’s two-run home run in the bottom of the third inning and Deters’ two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth inning.
After giving up those home runs, Louisiana’s Maria Gutierrez appeared to settle down and kept the Lady ‘Cats off balance. In the final three innings, the Lady ‘Cats were unable to score any runners, stranding four baserunners.
Those stranded base runners were the focus of Bowling Green High School Head Coach Dean Streed’s post-game interview with the Times.

Bowling Green High School ace pitcher Sarah Harness recorded 16 strikeouts during Thursday’s game against the Louisiana Lady Bulldogs.
