Lady Rebels Varsity Softball plays last game of the season

By: Chloe spradley

The Riverdale Academy varsity softball team played their last game of the season in a tournament on
Saturday, September 23 against the Tallulah Trojans. Even though the ending wasn’t what they wanted,
the Lady Rebels still kept their heads high and never gave up! Despite the 5-run deficit in the first inning,
the Lady rebels almost came back, ending the game 9 – 8. Makayla Pickett led the team with 2 hits in 4
at bat. Charity Williamson and Hannah Murray both scored 1 point each, and Mary Claire Jones scored 2
points, along with 2 stolen bases. Jadyn King followed Haylee Smith in the batting lineup, each bringing
in 2 runs. King pitched the whole game, they went 6 innings, giving up 9 runs on 10 hits, sticking out 4,
and walking 5.

These ladies did a fantastic job all season! The Lady Rebels varsity softball team never gave up and
always kept their heads high, despite the ending score of the game. Great job girls!
