Lady Trojans exit conference tourney play in first round / May 10, 2017

The Bluestone Middle School softball team hosted the first round of the Southside District softball playoffs against west division 2 seed Prince Edward Wednesday and lost, 10-1.

PE wasted little time getting in the scoring column, plating each of its first three batters in the first inning. The visitors took advantage of control issues for Lady Trojan ace hurler Devin Gregory and walked the first two batters before Gregory gave up a two-run single to the third batter in the order.

An error on the very next play put Bluestone in a 3-0 hole that would prove to be more than enough to decide the outcome of the game. The Lady Trojans struck for their only run in the fourth inning on an RBI single from Lily Loftis, who drove in Gregory, who had reached earlier in the inning on an error.

Loftis ultimately collected two of the Lady Trojans’ three hits for the game, which was far below their season average. Several mistakes late in the contest would further distance Prince Edward from the Lady Trojans and give them a 10-1 win, thus putting an end to the season for Bluestone.
Bluestone finished the season with a 7-2 record in conference play, and Wednesday’s game was only Gregory’s second loss of the season on the mound.
