When the Region 8-AA tournament was over for the Banks County High School softball team, the Lady Leopards were one game shy of state play.
To be more exact, BCHS was two runs away.
The Lady Leopards fell to Dawson County 3-1 in a game they needed to win to guarantee themselves a spot at the next level. BCHS entered the contest off a 18-1 thrashing of Oglethorpe County, but could not manage to get past the Lady Tigers.
