For most of Hebron Christianâ€™s Lady Eagles, Saturdayâ€™s visit to Freedom Ridge Park in Ridgeland was their first. At least it was their first in uniform.
Hebron made its first appearance ever in the softball state tournament on Saturday, and much like their trip to North State last week, they distinguished themselves immediately with a 4-2 win over Hiedelberg.
The Lady Eagles would fall in their next match, a 12-2 defeat at the hands of Silva Bay, but they would rally to stay in the tournament with a 5-4 win over Union Christian.

Itâ€™s every kidâ€™s dream. Itâ€™s the last inning, the bases are loaded and there are two strikes with two outs. Itâ€™s all up to one batter.
Lauren Hitt lived that dream on Saturday night. A hot hitter of late, Hitt came to the plate with Oak Hill facing elimination from the state tournament in Ridgeland.
The Lady Raiders were down 10-6, and it was their last at-bat. There were two outs and time was running out in the game.
