Jayvee softball takes lopsided win

SoVaNow.com / March 20, 2017


The Halifax County High School jayvee softball team bolted to an 18-3 Piedmont district win at Franklin County Thursday.

Halifax led 8-2 heading into the fifth inning. Raegan Ridgeway worked the first five innings. She walked four and struck out six.

Trinity Martin pitched the sixth inning, walking no one and fanning two.

Coach Reagan Cannon said, “Offensively I was very pleased, however, we have some things defensively we need to work on. We are fortunate our bats were hot because we committed five errors in the field. Our team as a whole showed a lot of promise for the remainder of the season and I am really excited to see these girls come together.”

Haley Saunders went 5-5 for HCHS.
