Moore earns Plainview title

MOORE — No. 6 Moore claimed the Plainview Tournament over the weekend by going undefeated in five games.

“We had some ups and downs, but overall the squad did really well,” Riley said. “I put some young players in positions they aren’t normally in, but I wanted to see how they would produce. It was a good weekend for everyone.”

Moore defeated Noble, Plainview, Ardmore and Duncan to make it to the title game. In the championship, it shutout Lone Grove 6-0. Four different pitchers threw for MHS during the tourney. They included Jenna Lynn, Halle Melone, Kassidy Erwin, and Demi Dobbs.

“Jenna had a great tournament, but we are still trying to find our consistent No. 2,” Riley said. “We have a lot of youth behind Jenna and I am so thankful that we will have this pitching squad next year too.”

Several players came through with solid performances on the way to winning the tournament.

“Jenna threw in portions of all five games,” Riley said. “She had a great weekend. She struck out 13 in the final game. Halle Melone stepped up her offensive game. She belted two homeruns in the finals, and had many singles and doubles in the other four games. Qiana Harrison and Jazmine White contributed on both sides of the plate. The team relied on their leadership all weekend.”

Moore has only one game this week when it faces Edmond Santa Fe Thursday in Edmond. With the team still nursing a variety of injuries, the a few days away from the playing field could help a squad that hasn’t lost a game since Aug. 24 when it fell to Muskogee in the Southmoore Festival.

“We are still recovering from injuries, so I am hopeful a few days off will help us out,” Riley said. “We have a very busy week next week, starting the week with Yukon and senior night on Tuesday against Midwest City. We don’t have any major injuries, but a lot of constant aches and pains. I have four down in the back, one with a knee issue, and a few others with body aches. There aren’t any injuries that I didn’t foresee at the start of the season and we have been doing a lot of preventative maintenance to keep them down.”
