PLAINVIEW — While there are a lot of new things to notice with the Plainview Lady Indians softball team this season, their winning mindset hasn’t changed.

Tuesday morning at the Plainview softball field, the Lady Indians showed they are in good hands under first-year head coach Kenna Self as they claimed a commanding 16-6 victory over Kingston in summer league action. 

With the game tied at 3-3 in the top of the second, Kingston managed to grab a narrow lead with a sacrifice fly RBI from Dana Wagnon.

However, the lead for the Lady Redskins didn’t last long as PHS responded with its own offensive output in the bottom half of the inning.

An RBI double from Halee Womack tied the game, before Riley Keith hit a sacrifice fly RBI to give the Lady Indians a 5-4 advantage. A line drive single by Brooklyn Storts made it a 6-4 lead.

Tatum Brewster then got in on the action for Plainview as she slapped a two-RBI single to left field, increasing the lead to 8-4. 

Keith then struck again with a two-RBI double to left center field, bringing the score to 10-4. Storts added one more RBI hit in the inning to give the Lady Indians a seven run lead going into the fourth inning. 

Kes Reeves got a run back for Kingston in the top half of the fourth when she scored on an attempted double steal, before Mia Mills hit an RBI bloop single just out of the outfield in right to make it an 11-6 score. 

But, just when it seemed like the Lady Redskins were gaining momentum, the Lady Indians struck back once again with another solid offensive inning.

Womack made it 12-6 with an RBI single to left, before Storts came through again with an RBI single.

Leah Selensky then smacked an RBI single to right field, before Billye Lester finished off the scoring with a two-RBI single.

Plainview will be back at home Thursday night for a summer league contest against Sulphur beginning at 6 p.m. 

Kingston meanwhile will be hosting the Kingston Festival beginning on July 17.
