Bottom half of order lifts Warhill over Tabb into 3A East softball semis

Bottom half of order lifts Warhill over Tabb into 3A East softball semis

JAMES CITY — The Warhill High softball team hasn’t consistently gotten production from its bottom half of the lineup this season.

If the Lions have more repeat 12-hit performances like they did at home in Tuesday’s 8-0 3A East Region quarterfinal win over Tabb, the 2015 state tournament participant will be another tough playoff out.

Five through nine in the Warhill batting order combined to go 6 for 13 as the Conference 25 champion Lions (21-1) clinched another home date at 6 p.m. Wednesday against Skyline in the region semifinals. Tabb’s season ended after the Tigers finished as runners-up to York in Conference 27.
