Tallassee softball's 1-2 pitching combo of Jordan Walters and Sinclair Cole led the Tigers to a 3-0 record in the Central Tournament in Phenix City on Saturday.

Walters threw a perfect game and one-hitter in two starts. Cole went the distance in a nine-inning victory.

Walters upstaged her opening start of the day, a 6-1 THS win vs. Sparkman with the perfect gem in the nightcap against Beulah, 13-0. Cole struck out five in the extra inning 6-5 winner against Russellville.

At the plate for the tournament, Walters had two hits including a homerun and four RBIs. Ansleee Osborne hit a homer, a double and thee singles with four RBIs. Belle Haynes had three singles, a double and three RBIs. Lexi Love added two singles, a double and homerun with five runs driven in. Sally Shipman and Avary Lumpkin had two hits a piece. Brooke Royster, Ella Thrash, Hannah Martin and Chloe Davidson also had hits.

Tallassee (6-1) has now won six in a row after the season-opening one-run setback against Prattville Christian 4-3, a game where the Tigers lost Chloe Baynes to a season-ending injury. The sophomore was in the dugout Saturday to cheer on her teammates.
