The Halifax County Middle School softball team is off to a 3-0 start this season, followed by a mercy-rule 10-0 win over Laurel Park Monday night at home.

The Lions belted 12 hits. Lynia Reed connected on a second inning two-run homer and finished three-for-three with three RBI. Ashlyn Strickland went two-for-two with two RBI.

Kamyra Jiggetts went three-for-three, with two runs scored.

Starting pitcher Greysen Terry and reliever Destiny Talbott combined on a one-hitter. Terry fanned three and Talbott four.

Halifax scored five runs on four hits in the first inning. The Lions had five runs on five hits in the second.

Coach James Smith said, discussing the overall outlook, said the team has a strong offense. “We really swing the ball,” said Smith, noting that his first nine players on the diamond are tough.

The pitching is improving, but hitting and defense will be the strengths of this year’s club.
