Megan Puckett went 2-for-4, while Tayler Mosley was 3-4.
Coach Melanie Saunders saw improvement with this win.
“The girls were much more focused tonight. We just need to keep improving each and every practice and game. We will get there if we keep working hard,” she said.

David Conner threw out the first pitch in memory of his sweet E, Elizabeth Conner! Thank You to all the local businesses that helped us with this awesome event,” she said.
