Diedra Holzhauer connects with a pitch during the Hornettes’ win over Murphysboro last week.

Despite being unable to finish the Nashville Invitational Saturday, the Hornettes did enough to make some school history.

When Nashville beat Central 10-2 in the second round of the Nashville Invitational, it marked Hornettes’ coach Dempsey Witte’s 157th career win, making him the winningest coach in the history of the Nashville softball program.

“I just feel lucky to have had so many great players play for me here,” Witte said. “Its really a testament to the hard work the girls put in year after year.”

Nashville took control over Central right out of the gate. After Jordi Harre and Mackenzie McFeron led off the game with consecutive singles, Emily Thompson drove in a run followed by back-to-back run scoring doubles by Brooke Burcham and Karly Stanowski.

Diedra Holzhauer hit a two-run double in the second, and then crushed a two-run home run in the fourth to keep the line moving for the Hornettes.

That was plenty of offense for Maci Ingram, who gave up just three hits and two earned runs to earn the win.
