Heading for home

Ada coach Scott Simpson waves junior Jordan Denio around third as Atoka third baseman Mikayla Walker waits for a throw that never came in the seventh inning of the Lady Cougars' 10-0 victory Tuesday.


Senior Leah Huling has pitched like a machine early in the fast-pitch season, and some potential stars are beginning to emerge from her supporting cast as well.

Lee — part of a completely revamped infield with senior Bree Foster, sophomore shortstop Elizabeth Redman and junior third baseman Lindi Robinson made up totally of players who didn't start a game at their current positions in 2011 — drove in two runs with a third-inning double and scored three times against the Lady Wampus Cats.
