UNION COUNTY — The Union County High School Softball Team continued their winning ways on Wednesday as they notched another playoff win over Airport. With that win the Jackets advanced to the Upper State Tournament yet again.
Senior Ashley Vinson pitched a gem for the Lady Jackets allowing just one hit and one walk, while striking out seven over seven innings of work in the contest. Offensively, the Jackets were led by Rebecca Lee who was two for two with two RBIs, Courtney Seymore who was one for three with a double, 2 RBIs, and a run scored, and Katelyn Petty who was 1-4 with a double and a run scored.
The Lady Jackets will return to action in the Upper State Tournament on Saturday (today) as they will travel to Lancaster to take on the Lancaster Lady Bruins.
Elsewhere in the Class 4A softball playoffs, Wren will take on North Augusta in the other Upper State game, and in the Lower State Tournament, Hartsville will face Beaufort, and Lugoff-Elgin will take on Berkeley. The Upper and Lower State Tournaments are double elimination.
