Battery Creek’s softball team stayed perfect in Region 8-3A play with a pair of lopsided wins over Lake Marion on Thursday.

Alexis Ortiz struck out all nine batters she faced and went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBIs in an 18-0 win in the first game, and Journeigh Doray racked up 12 strikeouts in a five-inning one-hitter in a 15-0 win in the second game. 

In game 1, Emily Crosby was 2-for-2 with a double, two runs, and two RBIs, McKenzie Young was 2-for-2 with two runs and three RBIs, and Jamiah Johnson was 2-for-2 with two runs and two RBIs. 

In game 2, Doray helped her own cause, going 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs, Margaret Schubert was 3-for-4 with three runs and three RBIs, Jasmine Nolan was 3-for-4 with a double, three runs, and an RBI, Johnson was 2-for-4 with two RBIs, and Elisa Williams was 2-for-3 and scored a run.

A day earlier, Ortiz struck out 15 in a two-hit shutout as Battery Creek blanked Thomas Heyward 9-0 in a clash of area softball powers.

Ortiz issued one walk and hit one batter in the gem, and Doray was 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBIs to lead the Dolphins at the plate. Kelsey Hill was 3-for-4 with an RBI, and Young and Crosby each went 2-for-4 and scored twice for Battery Creek.

The Dolphins (10-7, 6-0) wrap up region play with a doubleheader at Wade Hampton on April 22.
