Cherry sisters hit four homers as Aubrey rolls by Celina in district softball

AUBREY – Mya Cherry hit three home runs and drove in eight runs as Aubrey blew out Celina 15-3 in five innings during their District 11-4A softball showdown on a windy day Friday. Aubrey improves to 20-4 overall and 2-0 in district play.

Celina dropped to 11-7 and 2-2.

Aubrey swept the series following a 13-10 win on Tuesday in Celina.

After starting pitcher Brynlie Dunkin faced the minimum in the top of the first inning, the Chaparrals put up a five-spot in the bottom of the frame – highlighted by Cherry’s first home run to left field.

Twin sister Tamia hit a one-out double and scored on Dunkin’s RBI. Carmen Alexander added a two-out RBI double to right and Cherry blasted her first three-run homer over the left field wall.

Winds were blowing 20 MPH out on Friday – helping the long balls.

The Bobcats got one back in the top of the second with a first pitch home run from Susan Edwards before Dunkin retired the side. Aubrey added six more runs to grab an 11-1 lead. Catcher Abby Buxton drove in two runs with a one-out double. A third run came across on a Celina error.

Then Mya Cherry hit her second three-run bomb to deep left.

Addy Elliott had a two-run single in the top of the third inning to help Celina pull within 11-3. Dunkin got out of the inning with a strikeout and grounder to second. Tamia Cherry got in on the home run club with a two-run dinger and Aubrey went back up 10 at 13-3.

Dunkin had a perfect fourth inning and ended the fourth and fifth with a strikeout. She pitched five innings and allowed five hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Dunkin and the Cherrys are all continuing their careers at nearby Texas Woman’s University. Dunkin is a 2024 while the Cherrys are 2025s.

Mya Cherry finished off her incredible day with a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth. Aubrey will face Van Alstyne next week. The Chaparrals returned a bulk of their roster from last year when they reached the UIL state tournament for the first time since 2007.
