On Monday night, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders swept into Pheba to play the Lady Eagles of Hebron on the softball diamond.
Oak Hill jumped out on top early, eventually claiming an 8-3 lead over Hebron.
Lady Eagle starter Beveley Blake gave up four two-out runs in the first inning, but the defense and pitching settled down after that, allowing Hebron to climb back in it.
After getting three in the bottom of the third, Oak Hill settled in and added four more runs over the next two innings to seal the win.
Response to the fan bus ticket offered by McClenton Tours to West Pointâ€™s week-two match in Daytona Beach, Fla. has been great, according to Marion McClenton, owner of the company.
â€śIt has been very good,â€ť said McClenton on Wednesday. â€śThe people are very excited.â€ť
McClenton first offered one of his own buses in a package deal that included the price of the bus fare, game ticket and lodging. The total price is $178.
McClenton said that his bus quickly filled up, and he went right to work leasing another, 55 passenger bus.
