Season Opener For VHS Softball
The Vidalia High School Indians softball team kicked off their new season with a tournament in Grovetown. VHS played two games and picked up wins in both of them. This year they are under a new Head Coach, but a familiar name to VHS athletics with Ben Beck taking over the reins.
VHS vs. Evans
The first game of the season for VHS was against the Knights of Evans at Patriots Park in Grovetown. It was a close game, but the Indians pulled out the win, 5-3.
VHS vs. Harlem
Up next for Vidalia was Harlem. VHS took the early lead with a run in the bottom of the second inning. The Indians added two more in the fourth and then another in the fifth as they built up a 4-0 lead. Harlem finally got on the board with a run in the top of the seventh inning, but VHS held them off to get the win, 4-1.
Bailey Holland got the win in the circle for VHS with 11 strikeouts. Holland and Emma Vinson led the way at the plate with two hits each.
