"We have pitched and played defense as well as anybody in the state so far this year. Region play has started and that's what we play. As a staff we're looking forward to some big games including Ware on Tuesday. Those 1-run games are tough to lose and are on me, can't wait to get back on the field,“ said head coach Stan Hughes.
The week prior, Lady Trojans also defeated Telfair County on the road. Erin Robinson took the ball against the Lady Trojans and scattered 3 hits in the shutout. Robinson tallied 13 strikeouts. The Lady Trojans pounded out 14 hits including 3 by Hannah Capps with a double and a triple. Imani Paulk, Kaci Thacker, Erin Robinson, Ella Winters and Hanna Hutchison all had 2 hits each including a double by Paulk. Karlee Thomas also chipped in a hit.
