Stephenville maintained its perfect district record Wednesday afternoon by once again lighting up the scoreboard - this time against Midlothian Heritage, 13-1.
The Honeybees jumped on Heritage early on as Julia Flores doubled in Morgan DiCiccio before scoring on a double steal several pitches later giving Stephenville a 2-0 lead. Catcher Sami Shaffer eventually brought in Nadine Arredondo to increase the Stephenville advantage to 3-0 before the Jaguars got out of the first inning.
In Flores' next at-bat, she the hit the first of three Stephenville home runs, a three-run shot, extending the lead to 6-0 in the second inning.
Also hitting home runs in the game were Nadine Arredondo and Sami Shaffer.
The lone Heritage run came in the top of the fourth inning on a solo home-run, the first run allowed by the Honeybees in district play this season.
"I think right now we're seeing the ball well and we have a real test at Alvarado on Tuesday at their place," said Honeybee head coach Rus Mayes. "The back half of district is loaded, but we're playing well and we hope to keep it going."
Arredondo's home run in the game was a landmark for her and the Stephenville softball program. It was her seventh home run on the season, breaking her own school record of six last year.
"Nadine has been in a groove this year. Any time she goes to the plate she has a chance to do something special," Mayes said. "She's locked in and seeing the ball well right now."
Stephenville is 4-0 in district play so far this season and will be back in action Tuesday in Alvarado.
