Shubert, Bolick lead Tigers to win over Trojans

March 1, 2012

Fred T. Foard won a match-up of powerhouses in 2A and 3A softball on Thursday, knocking off defending CVAC champion Bandys, 2-1.

The Lady Tigers (2-0) were guided on the mound by a two-hit, 15-strikeout performance from Lexi Shubert.

Addison Bolick led Foard offensively. She drove in two runs on a double in the top of the fourth inning, scoring Mackenzie Dziendziel and Ashley Oliver, who had reached base on a walk and double, respectively.

“When we picked up those two runs, that was really big,” said Foard coach David Shubert. “Addison had a couple of big hits.”

Hickory's sinkhole could affect county teams

March 1, 2012

A sinkhole near the baseball field at Hickory High School is causing the Red Tornadoes to move their home baseball games.

Hickory baseball coach David Craft said he was recently notified of the issue at the field.

“There was a problem with an area outside of the playing surface at our field,” Craft said. “We’ve been notified that we are not to use our field.”

Beverly Snowden, public information officer with Hickory Public Schools, said the issue was caused by an existing pipe.
