Austin had some big outings at the plate as the Patriots maintained their undefeated record entering the last week of the regular season.
Providence Grove beat Trinity 15-0, Uwharrie Charter Academy 7-5 and Randleman 4-0. Austin had a total of seven hits in those games.
Austin was a big part of an offense in support of pitching standout Emma Mazzarone.
Austin, a senior infielder, drove in three runs in the Trinity game. Against UCA, Austin roped two triples and scored two runs. She followed that by going 3-for-4 with a home run and triple and knocking in half of the team’s runs against Randleman.
Mazzarone had another notable stretch, striking out seven in a three-hitting no-hitter against Trinity, fanning 16 against UCA and responding with a 17-strikeout, no-hitter vs. Randleman.
