Jenna Johnson was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate and Rayne Gray was close enough to perfect on the mound as Page (5-1, 3-0) remained undefeated in District 11-AAA softball with a 10-1 win at Ravenwood (2-6, 1-2) Tuesday afternoon.
“I’m just trying to give 100 percent on every at bat, every play I can,” said Johnson, a junior already committed to the University of Alabama, who also drew two walks, including one intentional.
“We knew we needed to get ahead of this team and stay ahead.”
Johnson may have helped her team early in a way she did want to do when, as the lead-off hitter, she turned strong a 1-2 pitch from Ravenwood’s Emily Cooper and sending it rocketing low and up the middle. The ball struck the Lady Raptor hurler in the left shin, ricocheting to the third-base fence. Johnson stopped at first with the first of her three singles on the day.
Cooper continued but was obviously hobbled for a couple of innings before getting her stride back, giving up two runs in the first on two hits and two errors, but striking out two before forcing the Lady Patriots to leave three stranded.
While the Lady Patriots took advantage of several errors and hit the ball consistently, it was the work of Gray that caught the eye of head coach Dawn Hale.
“[Rayne] had a great day," she said after the game. “She was just killing it. She was seeing what her pitches were doing and seeing what the batters were doing. I’m happy to have her.”
Ravenwood has a chance to recover with a pair of league games on the road at Dickson County Wednesday and at Franklin on Thursday before playing in the Brentwood Invitational Tournament at Crockett Park this weekend.
Page will travel to Centennial Thursday before taking the weekend off.
