New Palestine senior Abby Davis picked a good time to catch fire. In the team’s final week of the regular season, the second baseman was absolutely dialed in.

Davis, who leads off for the Class 3A No. 1 Dragons, went 8-for-8 at the plate with 11 RBIs and seven doubles in two wins over Indianapolis Lutheran and Delta on Thursday and Friday.

Davis had just three hits in the team’s previous three contests.

She finished the season second on the team in doubles hit (12) and runs scored (40) and was third in total hits (39). Davis also hit for average, finishing with a .419 clip.

New Palestine (24-2) opens sectional play at 6 p.m. tonight at home against Herron.
