LINCOLN -- This No. 9 batter delivered the No. 1 hit of her high school career on Friday afternoon.
Senior left fielder Marissa Walshâ€™s walkoff one-out single in the seventh inning delivered the run that gave Lincoln High a big 1-0 victory over Mount St. Charles Academy in their early showdown of Division I-North heavyweights at Saylesville Elementary School.
Walshâ€™s clutch hit settled a superb pitchersâ€™ duel between the Lionsâ€™ Alyssa McCoart and the Mountiesâ€™ Olivia Hendricks and gave her team their second win of the young season.
