Halifax County Middle School softball decisively defeated Ben Franklin Middle School, 15-0, to win the Lion program’s seventh straight district title Monday at home.

Halifax cracked ten hits in a title game stopped by the mercy rule. Kamyria Woody-Giggetts, Lynia Reed and Savianna Bailey had two hits apiece. Reed delivered two RBI and Woody-Giggetts had one.

Ashlyn Strickland had two RBI.

Kaitlyn Jackson pitched well in the circle.

She faced ten batters, striking out two and allowing one hit.

Lion coach James Smith saw his team improve to 17-1.

“At the beginning of the ear, we were struggling with pitching. Jackson came along and started pitching well,” said Smith.

The team also hit very well.

Smith said he has a core of ninth graders who had a strong season at the plate.

The team also had strong team unity, Smith said.
