In an exhilarating region clash on Monday of last week, the Toombs County’s Lady Dawgs secured an 8-4 victory over Tattnall County.
The scoreboard remained untouched until the third inning when Casey Cantwell delivered a gamechanging double that scored the opening run for the Lady Dawgs. The defining moment, however, came in the sixth inning when they rallied to add five more runs, solidifying their lead.
Nora Grace Mercer showcased her prowess with the bat, finishing 3-for-4, including two singles and a vital double that bolstered the team’s advantage. “Mishi” Smith didn’t hold back either, recording a 1-for-1 night at the plate, complemented by two walks and a commanding double. Defensively, Shaylin Stringer proved her mettle as a pitcher with a remarkable 16 strikeouts, anchoring the team’s win. Our two seniors, Kassidy Brantley and Morgan Kersey were honored by the team on Senior Night.
