Rain interrupts Atwood’s home debut

Rain shortened Jody Atwood’s home opener as Lebanon’s coach Monday.

White House Heritage had just scored to go up 5-2 with no outs in the top of the fifth inning when the bottom fell out and, following a delay, the game was called. Atwood said he didn’t believe the game was official and was hopeful of resuming the contest or starting over next month.

The Lady Patriots scored in four of their five at-bats against Anna Smallwood, who singled in both Lebanon runs in the bottom of the second inning to draw the Lady Devils to within 3-2.

Brittany Harris doubled and scored in the Lebanon second. Brianna Nagelhout, Morgan Jones and Macy Lee also singled for the Lady Devils.

Lebanon went 3-4-1 last week in the Commando Classic at Hendersonville’s Drakes Creek Park. The Lady Devils defeated Creek Wood, East Robertson and White House, tied Greenbrier 1-1 in a time limit and lost to Goodpasture, Riverdale, Davidson Academy and Smyrna.

LHS is scheduled to travel to Watertown on Tuesday for a 5 p.m. game, weather permitting. Both teams’ fields were covered by a tarp overnight.
