Lady Comets tune up with scrimmages
SoVaNow.com / March 04, 2013The Halifax County High School varsity softball team tuned up for the season with a pair of preseason scrimmages against Atlee and Riverbend Saturday in the Richmond area.
The Comet coaches did not keep score, but Courtney Epps and Taylor Barnes handled the pitching duties for the Lady Comets.
Meg Bane had a solid outing, going 3-for-4, while Tayler Mosley was 2-3 and Miyana Ross 2-2, according to an email sent by Saunders Saturday night.

“Not bad for our first outing,” she said.
