The Bainbridge High School varsity and JV softball teams were eager to play a game after having two games rained out last week, but unfortunately, Wednesday’s game was shortened by rain.

The JV Lady Bearcats lost to the Crisp County Lady Cougars 5-1, only managing to play three innings a side before bad weather ended the game.

Freshman pitcher Taylor Swanner had a fair outing for the Bearcats, throwing 59 strikes and only 25 balls.
