  • Softball: Clinton 5 – Whitmire 3… The Red Devils softball team got back into action last night traveling over to Whitmire to take on the Wolverines and the ride back most likely seemed shorter than the one going over as the Red Devils took a 5-3 win… The Red Devils scored first plating 2 runs in the top of the second inning when with 2 outs Madelyn Wood singled and Jam Akins drove her home with a triple and then Akins scored when Grayson Taylor singled…. Whitmire got one run back in the bottom of the inning but Clinton neutralized that by scoring one in the top of the third… Madison Burton tripled and then came home when Dianna Martin singled… Whitmire responded scoring a run of their own in the bottom of the inning and then tied the game 3-3 with a single run in the fourth… Clinton scored what would prove to be the winning run in the top of the fifth inning when Burton doubled, stole third and came home Martin grounded out… Clinton picked up their final run in the top of the seventh when Burton reached on a walk and later scored on a single by Caroline Birchmore… Madison Burton had 3 of the Red Devils 8 hits and Dianna Martin had 1 but had 2 RBIs… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: CHS-SB-4-9-18-Whit … For the games scorecard, click on the following: CHS-SB-4-9-18-Whit-SC… The team is at home today as they host the Chapman Panthers in a JV-Varsity doubleheader.

LDHS

Softball: Boiling Springs 7 – Laurens 0… The Raider softball team traveled up to Boiling Springs last night to take on the Bulldogs… Laurens took a 2-1 win at home a couple of weeks ago but the Bulldogs turned the tables plus some more as they took a 7-0 win over the Raiders… The Bulldogs put 3 runs on the board in the bottom of the first inning and that would prove to be enough as the Raider bats were still on spring break as they managed just 4 hits in the game and they also struck out 7 times and the Raiders did not draw a walk in the game… Octavia Johnson and Tamara Haney each had 2 hits for the Raiders… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: LDHS-SB-4-9-18-B-S … For the games scorecard, click on the following: LDHS-SB-4-9-18-B-S-SC… The Raiders return home today for a JV-Varsity doubleheader with the Hillcrest Rams… We plan on brining you the varsity game here about 7:30 and as usual we will stream in on the internet at wlbg.com.
