The first six Diamond Raider batters were set down on Monday afternoon, as Oak hill (12-8; 3-3) battled for a playoff spot against conference rival Winston. They eventually battled back to win 6-1.
â€śTheyâ€™ve got a little confidence and a little stagger about them,â€ť said Oak Hill head coach Marion Bratton about his girls. â€śIâ€™m tickled to death with that.â€ť
After the first two innings went by without a whimper from the Lady Raiders, Winston paid for it in the third.
The Hebron Christian Diamond Eagles (16-9; 5-0) were 2-1 overall, counting their 3-0 conference win over Winona on Thursday and a split in the Carroll Academy Tourney this weekend. They got a win over Magnolia Heights, but Jackson Prep was too much for Hebron, finally defeating them 3-1.
Things got off to a good start, as the Lady Eagles rounded off the week at Winona.
