Wesleyan extended its winning streak to six by winning all four its games at last week’s Decatur High School Bulldog Bash. The Wolves kicked off their stretch of four contests in two days by defeating Lakeside-DeKalb 8-0 in five innings last Friday. Jameson Kavel allowed just one hit and struck out eight to lead Wesleyan on the mound.

Saturday saw the Wolves take care of Chamblee 11-0, Westlake 14-8 and Decatur 4-2. Kavel starred in all three contests. She combined with Cassie Henning for a no-hitter against Chamblee, went 3-for-3 versus Westlake and picked up the win over Decatur while adding seven strikeouts to her season total. Lauren Morales and Riley Henning hit home runs in the blowout of Chamblee. Henning, who earned two wins and a save on the day, tied the showdown with Decatur thanks to an RBI single in the fifth inning before Meredith DiStasi hit what proved to be a game-winning RBI double.

Buford also went 4-0 last week, winning its four games by a combined score of 38-3. The Wolves clipped Grayson 4-3 in addition to shutouts of Etowah (8-0), Chestatee (12-0) and Madison County (14-0). It was the final game of the Elite Sports Classic for Buford when the No. 1 team in Class AAAA clashed with Grayson. Buford scored all of its runs in the first inning and the Rams scored all of their runs in the last inning. The Wolves’ Logan Caymol got a hard-earned save by striking out the final two Grayson batters with the tying run on third base and the winning run on second.

Brookwood posted three shutouts of its own last week in beating Archer 3-0, Etowah 8-0 and Mill Creek 7-0. Amanda Ablan continued her dominance on the bump by hurling a complete game against Mill Creek while mowing down 15 hitters. Ablan is now 17-0-1 on the season. Both Kallyn Glasser and Tori Gunn went 2-for-4 and Glasser drove in three runs.

In 2013, North Cobb won the Warrior Classic for the first time in 10 years. The Warriors defended their home turf and went back-to-back by winning two games last Saturday. They handled Lowndes 6-1 and edged Northside-Columbus 5-3 to claim the championship. McKenzie Krause drove in two runs to help North Cobb overcome an early 2-0 deficit in the finale against Northside-Columbus.
