Last week the Banks County High School softball team traveled to Dawson County to take on the South’s No.3 seed Jefferson in the first round of the Region 8-AA tournament.
Jefferson would score one run in the first inning and three in the second inning to take a 4-0 lead headed into the top of the fourth. This is when the Lady Leopards would begin their comeback.
McKenna Rylee, Hayley Warner, and Kaitlyn Stewart would all single to start the inning. Stewart’s single would drive home Rylee to score the first run of the game for BCHS. Taylor Kennedy advanced Warner and Stewart on a sacrifice bunt. Lindsey Elliott then singled home both Warner and Stewart to bring the Lady Leopards within one run of Jefferson.
