Freshman Mackenzie Sedlock had another strong outing in the pitching circle for the Twin Cedars softball team on Thursday night, helping the Sabers take a 5-0 win at Montezuma. Sedlock’s shutout victory included giving up just four hits and two walks, while notching a strikeout against the Braves. She also got plenty of support from the Sabers’ bats, as teammates Kassidy Swayne, Bailey Stone and Brooke Dunkin each had a pair of hits as part of an 11-hit night for Twin Cedars.

Sabers’ head coach Zack Dunkin says Brooke continues to be a strong hitter, as well as perhaps an undervalued player on defense.

“Brooke, she’s a slapper, a lead-off hitter who also does a lot of the catching. She has a good arm and is good on the bases,” said Coach Dunkin. “I think she’s done a good job of helping try to work some of our younger pitchers threw, and keeping them in the ballgames – and then also doing a good job of getting on base.”

The non-conference victory puts the Twin Cedars softball team at 19-14 overall entering tonight’s Bluegrass Conference home game against Seymour.
