Softball Enters Final Week

The Golden Knights softball team continued its competitive play last week, posting a 2-2 mark in GCAA play. The week kicked off Tuesday with a doubleheader sweep at Andrew College as WGTC won 4-2 and 8-5.  In the opener, Kati Mills (Douglasville – South Paulding) led the way both at the plate and on the mound. The freshman was 3-3 with a double and 2 RBI.  She also picked up the win, allowing 2 hits and 2 unearned runs through 5 innings. In the 2nd game, a pair of freshmen powered the offense. Lindsey Taylor (Stockbridge – Woodland) was 2-3 with a double and 3 RBI while Taylor Knight (Carrollton – Mt. Zion) was 2-3 with a double, 2 RBI and 2 runs.  Sophomore Sam Sneed (McDonough – Eagle's Landing) allowed just 2 hits over 4 innings to pick-up the win.

On Wednesday, the Knights traveled to Tifton and a meeting with 2nd place Abraham Baldwin. In Game 1, WGTC battled with Mills allowing just 1 hit over 6 innings, but lost the opener 3-2. The Fillies took game 2 by an 11-0 margin.
