Durden 1-Hitter Gives RTCA Win
The Lady Crusaders softball team of Robert Toombs Christian Academy played just one game last week, but they got the win over the Eagles of David Emanuel Academy at home on Tuesday. A great performance by Meredith Durden in the circle was key to the win.
Neither team scored over the first three innings of the game, but in the bottom of the fourth the Lady Crusaders took the lead with 4 runs. They added 5 more in the fifth inning to win the game by the run rule, 9-0.
Railee Thomas led RTCA with 3 hits and 2 RBI's. Durden got the win in the circle giving up just one hit, no walks, and striking out 10 batters.
