In county softball action the East Gadsden High School softball team managed to get in a softball game before the rains arrived.  The Jaguars won their third game of the season with a tough 17-14 win over Jefferson County.  Alexia Charlton picked up the win from the mound and was two-for-five with a home run.  Jazz Francis also had two hits including a double and a triple in the win. 

Robert F. Munroe and West Gadsden High School played for the second time this season with the same result.  The Munroe team defeated the Panthers 18-1.  Freshman pitcher Mary Jane Milam picked up her fourth win with no losses.  She struck out seven and walked three giving up only one hit.  Getting that lone hit was West Gadsden catcher Kayla Streeter, who hit a shot to right center field scoring one run and landing the speedster on third for a triple. 

The Munroe lineup hit the ball well.  Leading the way with three hits each were Georgie Branaman, Haleigh Corbally and Courtney Mayo.  The three also combined for nine RBIs.  Seventh grader Montana Manley playing in her first varsity game caught very well and had two hits including a double and a triple. Caroline Lewis was two-for-three with a double and Kristen Allen was two-for-three and scored three runs.

Munroe was playing without their junior or senior players because they were on class trips.  The Thursday game between Munroe and East Gadsden was rained out and not rescheduled.

The team moved to 10-6 on the season.
