Banks County’s Lady Leopards were 9-3 going into last weekends’ Evans Invitational in Augusta. A little bit of bad luck and the girls dropped the first three games, two by one run. Banks County bounced back and picked up the final two games in the tourney.
On Tuesday, it was back to region play for the team as the girls headed to Dawson County and came out on the short end of a 7-2 battle. The ladies are now 11-7 and 3-2 in region play as Banks County gets ready to play at Union County this week.
Taking on the Panthers on Thursday at 6 p.m. on the road, Banks County faces a tough opponent in the 12-1-1, 5-0 Union County team. In the first meeting this season, Union County defeated the ladies 6-0. Last season Banks County fell in the first game to Union County, but came back to defeat the Panthers twice, including once in the region tournament. The Lady Leopards are looking for a repeat of that feat as they head to Blairsville on Thursday.
