Jackie Ingram's first home run was the shot in the arm that her West Chester East softball team needed.
Her second brought the Vikings to within a run of visiting Downingtown East.
By the time her third long ball of the day cleared the high fence and rolled on the football field, her coach, Chuck Lindsay, was shaking his head in disbelief.
"Unbelievable," he said, as Ingram rounded the bases with a similar look of amazement across her face.
On practically any other day, the moment would have belonged to Ingram, as the senior had seven RBIs Friday. Instead, the resilient and hot-hitting Cougars spoiled Ingram's career-best game, scoring two runs in the eighth inning to defeat their Ches-Mont National opponents, 11-10.
