    Walks, hit-by-pitches and heads-up base running were the keys to success for the Carroll County Middle School softball team April 27, as they defeated visiting Williamstown, 5-1, to improve to a 5-0 record. “Our fielding was there, our hitting wasn’t there,” head coach Renee Coghill said. “I think the other team struggled pitching, so it kind of threw off my big hitters. My big hitters didn’t get a big hit tonight, so it was really odd. We won on base running. Base running is what got us there.”
