    Abby Tiller put on a clinic last Thursday.

    The Jellico Lady Blue Devil pitcher threw a complete game, all while blasting two shots over the center-field fence in order to lift Jellico over the Campbell County Lady Cougars, 12-11.

    “She needed that,” Jellico head coach Nancy Douglas said. “Abby will come through for you. She’s pretty resilient.”

    Trailing by one during the final inning, 11-10, with two outs, Jellico was looking for a savior.
