Coach Wood, GHC softball program earns 100th win
The Georgia Highlands College softball team swept a doubleheader Saturday over conference foe, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. The Chargers won 2-1 in the opener and 3-1 in the nightcap.
With the two victories, both the GHC program and head coach Melissa Wood now have 100 wins.
Pitcher Rebecca Meade tossed a complete game, three-hitter in the first game for a 2-1 win. She allowed only one, unearned run and struck out one.
The Chargers scored twice in the third inning on a Madison Gianfala walk, a Mackenzy McFarland sac bunt, a Lauren Womack hit, and sacrifice RBIs by Andria Booth and Shayla Smith.
In Game Two, GHC put a run on the board in the first inning off three walks and an RBI hit by Hannah Wills. In the fourth inning, Wills walked in front of McFarland’s second home run of the weekend and that would be enough scoring for pitchers Micayla McCoy and Meade.
McCoy earned the win with 3.2 innings in the circle. She allowed three hits and struck out six. Meade earned a save over the final 3.1 innings. She scattered three hits and struck out two.
The Chargers (22-5 overall, 6-2 Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association) have back-to-back, road conference doubleheaders Friday and Saturday at South Georgia CC and East Georgia CC.
