The Bainbridge High School Lady Cats softball team recently dropped two non-Region 1-AAAA road games.
On Wednesday, Sept. 9, they dropped an 8-5 decision to the Seminole County High School Lady Indians in Donalsonville, and on Thursday, Sept. 10, they dropped a 5-3 decision to the Berrien County High School Lady Rebels in Nashville.
The Lady Cats jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning against the Lady Indians. Mabry-Grace Briggs ignited the rally with a single. She moved around to third on a single by Mckynleigh Harrell. Briggs and Harrell came in on a single by catcher Morgan Cannon.
In the bottom of the fourth, the Lady Indians scored six runs on three doubles and two singles to take a 6-5 lead. Emily Brown singled to ignite a two run Lady Indians rally in the bottom of the sixth.
The Lady Cats took a quick 2-0 lead over the Lady Rebels in the top of the first Thursday in Nashville.
Taylor Swanner, Morgan Cannon and Makayla Hamilton all had RBIs against the Lady Rebels.
Lady Cats coach Chris Bryant said he liked the way his team competed in their two recent losses.
“When we fell behind against both Seminole County and Berrien County, we kept coming back and keeping it close and that is a credit to our young ladies heart and desire,” Bryant said. “We will return to Region 1-AAAA play Tuesday when we travel to Albany for a 5:30 p.m. game against the Albany High School Lady Indians.”
