The Winder-Barrow High School softball team is headed back to the state tournament.
The only question now is what seed the Lady Bulldoggs will have.
WBHS swept Apalachee High School on the road last week to guarantee itself a spot in the upcoming AAAAA tournament. A big afternoon at the plate, including home runs by Jakayla Sullivan, Cathleen Nugue and Paige Skinner, helped the Lady Bulldoggs earn 7-3 and 10-6 victories.
For the AHS Lady Wildcats, last season’s region champion, the 2015 season comes to a close at 14-3.
The final four teams in the region tournament include WBHS, Heritage, Flowery Branch and Loganville. The Lady Bulldoggs are the lowest seed (No. 5) still alive in the region postseason.
Last week’s quarterfinal matchup saw the final games for AHS standout Logan Leverette. After homering in her first plate appearance of the series, Leverette was intentionally walked six times.
It’s the third consecutive trip to state for the Lady Bulldoggs fast-pitch program.
