“The arm feels great,” Tyteca said after the Vikings disposed of Copper Hills Friday afternoon. “It gets a little tight when it’s cold, but other than that I’m feeling great.”
Tyteca mowed down the visitors to the tune of 12 strikeouts and the Viking bats were alive to put Copper Hills away, 7-2.
“We have good chemistry on this team,” Tyteca said. “We have eight seniors who have been playing together for a long time and great underclassmen. It’s a fun team.”
“Shelbi has been great,” said Viewmont coach Tiffany Randall. “Her arm is strong and she’s playing real well.”
The Vikings also have super sophomore Meghan Peay who picked up valuable experience as a ninth grader last season when Tyteca went down. Peay was so strong as a freshmen she earned all-state honors.
“It’s great to have such strong pitchers,” Randall said.
In the second inning, the Vikings did all the damage they needed scoring four runs. Tyteca got on and her speed-up runner, Brandi Karl stole second and third base before Kalli Randall smacked a shot into right field. The Copper Hills field misplayed the hit and Karl scored. Lexi Wayman’s hit into right field moved Randall to third followed by a shot up the middle by Kaylin Street to score Randall. Katie Bowdridge’s hit plated Wayman and Street.
“We did some good things today,” Randall said. “I like this team.”
