Hillcrest softball coach earns milestone win

Hillcrest softball head coach Ted Swinney picked up his 400th career coaching victory on Friday, as the Patriots beat McAdory, 12-5.

Swinney’s “milestone victory” comes in the first game of his 13th season as head coach of the Hillcrest softball program.

The Patriots led McAdory, 1-0 before scoring three runs in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Hillcrest’s MacKenzie Nece started off the inning with a walk, and advancd to second with a stolen base. Nece took third base on a fielder’s choice, and scored the Patriots second run of the game on a McAdory throwing error.
