The Georgia Highlands College softball team swept a non-conference doubleheader Thursday at Cleveland State (TN). The Chargers won 4-3 in eight innings and 11-0 in five innings.
Rebecca Meade (18-7) got the win in game one throwing 5.1 innings. Micayla McCoy (16-5) entered to pick up her third save in the opener and tossed a complete game shutout in the second game. The pair combined for seven strikeouts in the twin-bill.
The offense was led by Shayla Smith (photo), who hit for the cycle on the day. Smith was 6-for-7 with a walk, sacrifice hit, double, triple and a home run. She drove in three of the Chargers’ four runs in the extra inning victory.
Madison Gianfala recorded five hits on the day and swiped a pair of bases. Lauren Womack was a perfect 3-for-3 in the second game.
GHC is now 38-12 on the year and travels to Carrollton Friday to take on West Georgia Tech in the final conference doubleheader of the season.
