The Wilmington High School reserve softball team swept Hamilton Badin in a season-opening doubleheader Saturday at the WHS field.

Wilmington, 2-0 on the year, will play at Beavercreek 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The Lady Hurricane won the first game 15-5 then scored a 12-2 win in the second game.

Alix Smith was the winning pitcher in the first game. She was aided defensively by third baseman Dee Snell, who turned a double play by catching a line drive then firing to Kaylee Tackett at second who threw to Nicole Gallion at first.

Wilmington broke the first game open with an eight-run third inning, started by Shay Mitchell’s lead-off single.

In the nightcap, Tackett gave up four singles to pick up the pitching victory. Wilmington scored a run in every inning for the win.
