Lady Dukes pick up three wins

The Gloucester High School varsity softball team won three games in the past week, defeating Bethel, Denbigh and Phoebus high schools.

Gloucester beat the Bethel Bruins, 4-1, last Thursday at home. Pitcher Alivia Bruce gave up three hits in her complete game performance, striking out 13 batters.

The Lady Dukes found themselves in a 1-0 deficit at the bottom of the fifth inning. Grace Sinko-Vanliew led the inning with a single and promptly stole second base. Sinko-Vanliew scored as Tessa Carteret reached second base on an infield error. Back-to-back sacrifice bunts by Chloe Davis and Alexis Dishman allowed Carteret to reach home, giving Gloucester a 2-1 lead.

In the sixth inning, Gloucester scored two more runs as Bruce hit a double to the left of center field and Cameron followed with a two-run home run. Both Kaia Hutton and Autumn Cookson contributed doubles in the win.
