Vidalia High's Lady Vikings picked up their first District 3-3A win of the season, defeating Marksville in Marksivlle 10-1 Thursday.
"That was big because the last two years I felt we had the better team, but didn't play well and lost," said Lady Viking coach Gary Paul Parnham.
Taylor Rodgers pitched five shutout innings and allowed just two hits with one walk to go along with six strikeouts. Laura Perilloux threw the final two innings and allowed one run on one hit, struck out four and walked one.
Perrilloux tripled and singled twice to lead the Lady Viking offense.
Emily Meyers also went 3-for-4 at the plate.
Vidalia picked up two wins at the Mangham Tournament on Saturday.
The Lady Vikings defeated Delhi Charter 10-5.
Vidalia had 11 hits in the contest, led by Kennedy Beard with a double and two singles.
Katlyn Thornton added three singles.
Laura Perrilloux picked up the win, allowing seven hits, while striking out three and allowing no walks.
Taylor Rodgers allowed five hits over the final two innings, striking out two.
Vidalia defeated Forest 12-6 in its final game.
Thornton led the way with a home run, double and two singles.
Beard doubled and singled twice, while Cassie Gonzales added two singles.
Kelsee Partridge added a double.
Perrilloux pitched a complete game, allowing nine hits, striking out two and walking none.
"We've had some freshmen step up and that's been a surprise, but a good surprise," Parnham said. "Taylor has done a good job on the mound and she's allowing Laura to stay fresher and not having to pitch every inning of every game. I am very pleased with the effort. We're making some mistakes, but it's not because of lack of effort."
Vidalia visits Buckeye Thursday. They will compete in the Jena-LasSalle Tourney this weekend.
