“The fifth, sixth, and seventh innings in the first game, and the whole second game I thought we swung it the way we were capable of swinging it,” Lady Saints head coach Tommy McDaniel said. “Defensively, it was our best two games of defense all year. We were really good on the infield.”
McDaniel added that he was “glad” to see the three sophomores finish at home on a high note.
“I was glad to send our three sophomores, Kassee Carter, Jaleah Ramsey and Jas Simmons, out on a positive,” he said. “They have worked hard here for two years and that was our goal (Sunday) to not only win the games, but send them out on a positive.”
