UNION — The Sims Middle School Lady Tigers softball team ended their season Wednesday with a record of 7-4.
The Lady Tigers finished off the season with two losses against the Byrnes C-team, but ended with a winning record for the season despite the losses.
The team was led by head coach Brooke Rollins and Jarred O’Shields.
“I am so proud of these young ladies,” Rollins said. “Each of them have improved this season and worked hard. I have been impressed at how well these girls have come together and truly played as a team.”
Rollins said her team often played “C-teams,” consisting of 7th, 8th and 9th graders since there is not an official middle school conference for softball, and knowing they often played against older and more experienced girls really showed off their hard work and talent.
“Perseverance was a key term for us this year because no matter how many runs we were down earlier in a given game, we persevered and ended up winning a lot those games,” Rollins said. “I just could not be any more proud.”
Overall stats from the season:
Adelyn Ferrell had 90 strikeouts in 10 complete games.

2) Adelynn Ferrell — .678
3) Kate Burgess — .677
