Another loss for GHS Tiger Softball

GHS softball fell to Excel Tuesday night for the second time this season.

Excel, who is ranked number one in 2A, beat GHS 4-0.

“It was a small improvement over last time, when they beat us 9-0,” Sunnycalb says.

Sunnycalb said her girls struck out 14 times during the game.

“We just couldn’t hit the ball,” Sunnycalb said. “You have to put in play or you won’t be successful.”

Abby Blackmon and Flomekia Williams grabbed the Tiger’s only 2 hits of the evening. Both batted 1 for 3.

“Our defense is still touch and go at times,” Sunnycalb said. “We will do the hard stuff sometimes and then go and mess up the easy things.”

Sunnycalb said there were a few misjudged fly balls, and some other purely mental errors.

Cortnee Myers pitched and was credited with the loss.

The Tigers play a double-header tomorrow versus Highland Home at Highland Home. Play begins at 4 p.m.
