ELLISVILLE MS– The MMI softball team falls twice to the three-time defending MACJC champion and NJCAA Division II national runner-up Jones County (13-0 and 2-0).
In game one, Kathryn Clark, Annelise Borg and Ashley Holt each singled for the Tigers. Caitlyn Cooper started, went one-plus inning and took the loss. She gave up five runs on four hits. Lauren Camacho went 1 1/3 innings, allowed six runs and two hits. Lindsey Savoie went the final 1 2/3 innings and gave up two runs and four hits.
In game two MMI made some key adjustments to the Jones County offense and was able to hold them to two runs. Lindsey Savoie went the distance and took the loss. She allowed two runs, eight hits, walked one and struck out two. Alisea Balderaz singled twice for MMI, while Angel Harrison singled.
" I am really proud of this group for making adjustments in game two. Lindsey went out and was able to get fly outs and ground outs for our defense to handle. Our offense was selective and made good decisions at the plate, we just weren't able to push runs across." Head Coach Sarah Harman.
The Lady Tigers are back in action this Thursday as they travel to East Central Community College in MS.
