Charleston sophomore Karah Moore did not allow either a hit or a walk in a 7-0 softball victory over Apollo Conference foe Mahomet on Saturday.

The right-hander needed only 57 pitches, mixing speeds and movement to earn the win.

“She mixed it up really well today,” CHS coach Blain Mayhall said.


Charleston is now 4-0 in the Apollo Conference, tied for first place with Mattoon whose starter, Raven Morrison, had a no-hitter going until the fifth inning in a 10-0 victory over host Effingham on Saturday.

Reagan McGahey ripped a home run and drove in two runs to lead the Trojans in an 8-2 victory in the second game. The senior went 3-for-7 with four runs scored in the doubleheader.

Teammate Ashlynn McPeak drove in seven runs across the two games on a homer and four hits in eight at-bats.

“Those seniors just keep hitting,” Mayhall said. “They are big leaders on this team.”

Freshman Addison Shrader scored five times and went 5-for-6 while sophomore Mikayla Lane gave Charleston a second strong effort on the mound, striking out seven, scattering nine hits and allowing two earned runs.

“She doesn’t have all the pitches that Karah does,” Mayhall said, “but her change-up was consistently very good today.”
