Lyons, GA. – AUGUST 19, 2022
“Our girls battled tonight but we came up a little short. We had plenty of opportunities to scratch a run before it even went into extra innings. We had 7 hits and we barreled up a bunch of other balls but they were right at their defenders. We will get back to work and get ready for our schedule next week.“Coach Hayne Brant
