"I was speechless," Johnson said. "I was so excited. It was unbelievable and awesome. It was the biggest win of the year. We were ready and came prepared."
Lewis said the freshman seemed not to realize what had happened.
"I was going to shake her because she stopped running," Lewis said. "I told her to keep going but she kept watching. She was surprised but she has been killing the ball."
Hoover cut the deficit to two in the second inning but the Indians scored in all of the first four innings, building a 6-1 lead, and were never threatened.
Every Sissonville batter had a hit as they touched up Hoover standout pitcher Allison Rager for 13 hits. The seven runs are the most the Huskies had given up all year with their previous high being four to Scott.
"Wasn't out night tonight, for sure," Hoover Coach Missy Smith said. "They definitely looked sharper than we did. We didn't do a very good job tonight."
Sissonville plays at defending Class AA state champion Wayne in the Region 4 championship next Thursday.
