JONESVILLE — They started off strong but the Jonesville Elementary/Middle School Lady Wildcats Softball Team ultimately fell 17-6 to Spartanburg C on Tuesday.
In a statement released Wednesday, JEMS Athletic Director Jay Voiselle said that in Tuesday’s game the Lady Wildcats “held a 6-2 lead heading into the bottom of the second.”
The Lady Wildats’ lead was not to last, however, as “Spartanburg would fight back and carry a 7-6 lead into the 5th where their bats came alive, scoring 10 runs in the last inning to carry the Vikings to the 17-6 win.”
Voiselle said that Lady Wildcat Landyn Queen “lead all Jonesville hitters, going 2/3 scoring twice.” Lady Wildcat Riley Gregory “also went 2/3 with a double and single.” Lady Wilcats Kyla Davis, Star Young, Bethany Hames, and Lexi England “added singles for Jonesville.”
With Tuesday’s loss the Lady Wildats are now 1-1 for the season.
Jonesville was scheduled to play Boiling Springs on Wednesday at the Mac Cunningham Complex in Jonesville and to travel to Boiling Springs on Friday.
