GS comes up just short in midweek affair


DJ Cadden, Sports Editor

he Lady Eagles continued to struggle on Thursday, dropping a midweek contest in Jacksonville, 6-5.

The loss marks the fifth straight for GS, who had not taken the field since in February 20 after the Georgia Classic was rained out.

GS got out to a quick three-run lead by the third inning on the backs of a hit, a steal and a wild pitch. However, a four-run third inning by the Dolphins quickly erased the runs.

The Eagles grabbed the lead again in the fifth inning, but could not hold off the Dolphins, who went on to win in a 6-5 ballgame.

Ashleigh Duty led the offensive charge with three hits, but outfielder Madi Banks recorded the only RBI of the game for the Eagles.

Following the loss, the Lady Eagles sit at 4-7 on the season. GS will be back in action on Friday, when they participate in The Spring Games at Maderia Invitationa in Florida.
