Lady Cats lose in nail biter against Colquitt County

Thursday afternoon the Lady Cats softball team took to the Bearcat diamond for their first home game, where they narrowly lost in the ninth inning to Colquitt County 3-2.

Coach Christopher Bryant was extremely proud of his team.

“We didn’t get the results we wanted, but any time you take a 7A school to nine innings; it’s an improvement,” he said.

Bryant said the team worked together and a lot of the younger teammates stepped up.

Senior Abbigayle Hamilton thought the team did great overall.

“We stayed up the whole time until the last run in the ninth inning,” Hamilton said.

The team had eight hits throughout the game, with Haylee Nix bringing in the run.

Lexie Delbrey pitched, where she struck out 16 players.

Brenna Conley then stepped up to the mound after 7 innings, where Bryant said she also did a great job.

Hamilton agreed saying Brenna did a great job pitching, but everyone did a great job contributing as a whole, especially when it came to hitting at the plate. 

The team will play again on Tuesday, August 18, at Dougherty High.
