By James Cook:

The Lady Bobcats ran into a buzz-saw twice this week and both times it was named Greenbrier West. The Lady Cavaliers first defeated Summers County 15-2 on Tuesday in Hinton as play in Class A – Region 3 – Section 2 got into full swing. Miranda Billings grabbed the loss for the Lady Bobcats as the Lady Cavaliers’ bats were too hot on the evening.scsoftball

The Lady Bobcats in between the battles with Greenbrier West did grab an exciting 9-8 win over Montcalm to stay alive for the time being.  The Two teams went back and forth as the Lady Bobcats would score twice in the bottom of the seventh inning to seal the win and stay alive. Summers County had 14 hits versus the Lady Generals.
