At the plate, the Lady Braves were led multiple hit performances from Aspen Barker, Alyssa Cosper, Ally Harris, and Lora Glover. Harris and Barker each had two RBI’s in the first win of the season.

In game two of the day for Coach Hornsby’s squad, the Lady Braves moved to 2-2 on the season with another close 4-3 win over Bowdon.

Ally Harris had another two-hit day with an RBI while Anna Cosper and Taylor Storey also added RBI’s. Alexus Crawford scored two runs.

Mallory Galloway started for the Lady Braves tossing five innings allowing three runs on four hits with three strikeouts while Bennett came on again to shut down the Red Devilettes over the final two innings to earn the win.
