Excel shut out by defending champs


Excel softball was two-hit in an 8-0, six-inning loss to defending state champions Gordon Lee Tuesday.

Brighton McCollum and Rachel Parrott had singles for the Lady Eagles (8-11, 2-7), but neither advanced past first base.

Pitcher Hannah Lee held the powerhouse Lady Trojans in some semblance of check for a few innings, giving up two runs in the first and none in the second.

Gordon Lee kept chipping away though, scoring two runs in the third, one in the fourth and three in the sixth to end the game and run their record to 20-1.

Lee took the loss after pitching all six innings, with six of the runs earned.

Excel next plays at Christian Heritage, Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
