BELHAVEN – Lawrence Academy continued to ride their Tarheel Independent Conference unbeaten streak here Friday.

The Lady Warriors used a seven-inning two-hitter from sophomore right-hander Kendall Street as they knocked off Pungo Christian Academy 8-0.

Lawrence’s ace pitcher struck out 15 in the victory and allowed two hits and no runs.

“Kendall was simply awesome,” Warrior Head Coach Bill Swain said.

Offensively, the Warriors plated three runs in the third inning, one in the fifth and two each in the sixth and seventh to take the win.

Courtney Mizelle led the Lady Warriors with a 2-for-4 day at the plate. Kendra Spruill was 2-for-3 for Lawrence while Ashley Swain and Sarah Capehart were each 1-for-3. Ashtyn Mizelle had the other hit while going 1-for-4.

“Our younger players n Kendra, Courtney and Ashtyn n got some big hits today,” Swain said.

Brinkley Johnson led Pungo with a 1-for-2 day at the plate while Chelsea Mizelle was 1-for-3.

The win boosted the Lawrence record to 9-1 overall and 6-0 in the TIC. It came just one day after the Warriors handled TIC opponent Albemarle School in an 8-4 victory.
