In a major school rivalry last Wednesday, both the Greenville Academy Nado varsity baseball team and the Ladies softball team defeated the Fort Dale Eagle teams in exciting games.

The Ladies' softball teams took the field first, and after a five-inning lead by the Eagles, the Lady Nados stormed back by scoring 13 points in the sixth inning. The Nados were able to tie the game as Amanda "Smooch" Caine slid into home in the sixth. GA was then able to chalk up six more points and bring home the win with the final score 19-18.

Leading scorers for GA were Amy Winters, with four runs, and Alicia Waller and Amanda Caine, who each had three runs for the Nados.
