WCS falls on road

FAYETTEVILLE -- C.C. Drew crushed a three-run home run, and two-time defending state champion Cape Fear Christian defeated Wayne Christian 4-0 for the Carolina Christian 1-A softball tournament title.

Wayne Christian right-hander Rachel McCollum held CFCA scoreless through three innings. Olivia Scarborough, who earned all-state accolades last season, scored the game's first run on Callie Taylor's fourth-inning single.

McCollum surrendered four earned runs on seven hits and fanned eight CFCA batters.

Scarborough held Wayne Christian to four hits and recorded 12 strikeouts inside the pitcher's circle. Sarah McCollum, who signed with Wake Tech Community College, batted 2-for-3. Teammates Regan Hinton and Courtney Barrow added one hit apiece.

The Eagles (9-5 overall) return to action Tuesday afternoon at Hobgood Academy in the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association 1-A playoffs.

The first round is single elimination. The final four, which will be double elimination, is scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Buies Creek.
