THE JACKSON County Comprehensive High School softball team picked up its sixth straight region win last week after knocking off rival East Jackson 10-0 in five innings.
Jessica Baker pitched a complete shutout, facing 17 batters and only giving up one hit.
Peyton Sorrells led the Panther offensive, going two-for-three at the plate and earning three RBIs. Mason Garland went one-for-three and batted in three runners. Madi Pecht was two-for-two and scored two runs.
Jessica Baker and Victoria Woods had one RBI apiece. Rounding out scoring for the Panthers were Woods (1), Alyssa Dasher (1) and Shelton Kendrix (2) and Destiny Gaudlock (1).
The Lady Panthers are now 6-0 in region 8-AAA (10-2 overall), but only hold a two-game lead over second place North Oconee.
The Panthers will face off against South Effingham and Jefferson in the North Gwinnett-Bulldog/Hawk Invitational this weekend.
