The Bainbridge High School Lady Cats softball team that finished fourth in Region 1-AAAA with a 7-6 record bowed out of the State Class AAAA Tournament with a double header loss to Loganville’s Walnut Grave High School Lady Warriors Monday in Conyers.

Lady Cats coach Chris Bryant said he could not be prouder of his teams during the regular season and the state tournament.

“We lost our two state tournament games 11-0 and 17-2,” coach Bryant said. “Walnut Grove is an outstanding team. The two pitchers we faced both threw hard and were able to spot the ball effectively.”

Bryant said his team played well throughout the season.

“All in all this has been an exciting year for Lady Cats softball,” he said. “I was fortunate to work with some great young ladies and had the opportunity to watch them develop into a strong team.”

Bryant further pointed out that as young as the team was he was overly impressed with their efforts in the tough Region 1-AAAA.

“Our young ladies competed in every game, and no matter what the end results they kept their heads held high,” he said. “We have no seniors and I cannot begin to say how excited I am for the future of Lady Cats softball. The future looks bright.”
