Lady Jackets earn respect in Jackson

The Lady Jackets finished 5-1 and took home second place in the USA/Elite Gold Championship in Jackson. They put up 45 runs for the weekend and only allowed 6. Solid defense, consistent pitching and hot bats were the keys to making it to the Championship game on Sunday.

It was definitely a team effort making routine plays on defense, and a few dynamic defensive plays from Anyla and Ty’Liyah. Jalyn & Olivia handled business on the mound and key bunts from Dylan & Aleeya; big hits from Sydney, Myia and Trinity along with a solo HR from Aubri and a 3 HR day from Chloe’on Sunday; all led up to the Championship game vs the Vipers.

The Lady Jackets battled during the whole game, but ultimately couldn’t convert with loading the bases 3 times and lost 0-1. They didn’t take home bragging rights for the weekend, but they did establish themselves as a team with heart and a major threat in USA/ASA Fastpitch Softball… Go Lady Jackets!
