Lady Indians Softball wins on Phasavang’s Walkoff Hit

On a night that Tallulah Falls School (TFS) honored its two seniors Allie Phasavang and Tahj Charlton, the softball team won in dramatic fashion on a walkoff hit in a 13-12 final against visiting Barrow Arts & Sciences Academy. Despite committing about a dozen errors over the first three frames, TFS reversed course and committed just a couple the rest of the way, holding BASA scoreless the final three innings. That included an outfield assist to throw out a base runner at third in the seventh inning. The bats came up with timely hits, including in the bottom of the seventh. Charlotte Stafford got on by a single, stole second, and scored on a Phasavang walkoff hit. BASA had scored three in the first before TFS put up a 7-spot in the second, only to see the visitors score five runs to pull ahead. The Lady Indians also had a 5-run fourth inning, and were tied at 12 apiece. until the final stanza. Katie Anderson had two hits and two RBI, while Abby McCoy, Charlton, and Phasavang each had two RBI. Rylee Vandiver added three hits. Callie Craver earned the victory, allowing only four hits and striking out six. Previously this season against BASA, TFS fell 15-0 and 16-7, but showed how far they’ve come in this victory. The girls finish the home portion of the schedule undefeated at 4-0, and are now 5-7 overall. The team is now on a 4-game win streak as well.
