White said the transition from junior high to high school coach was easy because of assistant coach Jeremy Bates, son of the former head coach.

“Coach Bates gets these girls so prepared,” White said. “Jeremy has done an awesome job running the offense. Really, I just stand over there and say, ‘Good job.'”

Piedmont third baseman Jordan Chism hit two home runs, including a grand slam in the third inning, and had seven RBIs.

Second baseman Bre Davis hit a three-run homer in the first and had three hits for Piedmont.

Lindsay Pittman homered in a losing effort for Newcastle.

YUKON ADVANCES BEHIND ELLIS' SHUTOUT

Senior hurler Maddy Ellis struck out 12 and scattered seven hits as Yukon defeated Sand Springs, 2-0.

“One of the best outings of my season,” Ellis said. ‘I just felt like I was really into it.”

Yukon, which won the state title in 2010, got RBI singles from Ashley Faison and Blaire Walker in the game.

Brianna Matthews and Paige Crawford both doubled and scored in the game.

“(Ellis) threw really well,” Yukon coach Heather Shanahan said. “She finished really strong. She is a great competitor.”
