Chargers softball has solid week


The Georgia Highlands College softball team went 3-2 last week.

The Chargers defeated Harford Community College 2-1, beat Enterprise State 10-4 and lost to Southern Union State 4-1, all on Thursday.

On Friday, GHC beat Cleveland State 4-1, but then lost to Southern Union State again by a final of 10-2.

In the win over Harford, Shay Sullins threw a complete game, seven-inning, three-hitter with nine strikeouts, allowing no earned runs. Cass alum Sierrah Gani had two hits, including a double, in the win.

The second game saw a higher-scoring affair, with Highlands scoring six runs in the first inning and cruising the rest of the way for the 10-4 win.

Mya Adams and Alia Booth each had three hits, while Kindell Reeves had two hits and two RBIs, Hannah Wills had two hits and three RBIs and Sally Fairbank went 2-for-3.

Micayla McCoy pitched all seven innings, allowing no earned runs.

GHC then lost the third game Thursday to Southern Union State, as the Chargers only had four hits in a 4-1 loss. Two of the hits, including a double, came from Reeves.

On Friday, GHC bounced back to beat Cleveland State 4-1 behind a complete-game, four-hitter by McCoy. Shayla Smith hit a home run and Reeves went 2-for-3 with two doubles. Adams and Wills also had two hits, with Wills driving in two runs.

The last game of the week was the worst for the Chargers, losing 10-2 to Southern Union State. Despite a home run from Reeves, GHC’s pitchers struggled to keep Southern Union State at bay.

Georgia Highlands, now 8-4, will have a chance to get revenge against Southern Union State this week with a Tuesday doubleheader in Wadley, Alabama, before a full weekend of five games against five different opponents.
