Soggy week for girls sports

-A A +A
By Susie Morris

The rain washed away many of the scheduled recent outdoors contests for softball and tennis in the county but a few games managed to squeeze in around the raindrops. 

This week is the last week before Gadsden County schools close for spring break week March 17 to 21. 

AUCILLA 9

MUNROE 2

Aucilla Christian Academy’s pitcher kept the Munroe Lady Cats hitting off balance until late in the game. In the meantime, the Warriors hitting jumped in early as they struck for six runs in the first three innings. 

Munroe managed two runs in the bottom of the sixth. Four different players accounted for one hit each: Maddey Pappadakis, Mary Pat Thomas, Hannah Wilde and Jeri Sloan. Pappadakis and Wilde each scored a run and Sloan took the loss on the mound. The sophomore righty walked six and struck out none. 

Munroe dropped to 5-4 on the season. Their game with Liberty County was rained out this past Thursday night. This week they play at East Gadsden at 5 p.m. Tuesday, host Blountstown at 6 p.m. Thursday and play at North Bay Haven in Panama City on Friday. 

FLORIDA HIGH 16

EAST GADSDEN 1

Florida High took only three innings to score 16 runs and defeat the Jaguars in softball. Victoria Harden hit a triple that scored their single run, and was also the only hit of the night. Amber Geather took the loss on the mound. 

TENNIS

The Munroe tennis team, coached by Tamra Erde, was rained out this past Thursday in an important district match with John Paul II Catholic High School and rescheduled a match with Madison County for the following week. 

This week the Lady Cats played Florida High on Monday and head to Madison to face Madison County on Thursday.
