Thames put together the best performance of the team at the plate going 2-for-3 against Barbers Hill, which is ranked No. 4 in the state, this week.

While her primary position has been behind the plate this season, Thames was able to play some shortstop against Barbers Hill, which is the position she played last season during her sophomore campaign.
