GHC softball earns split with conference leader GMC
Georgia Highlands College softball split a home doubleheader Wednesday with conference leader Georgia Military College losing the opener 6-2, but taking the second game 6-0.
The Chargers led 1-0 through four innings in the first game before the visiting Bulldogs posted six runs across the final three frames. In Game 2, GHC pitcher Haley Robinson (7 IP, 0R, 7H, 0BB, 1K) tossed a complete-game shutout for her sixth win of the year in the circle.
Former Cass standout, Sierrah Gani (photo) and Kayla Laukka provided much of the offense in the victory. Gani was 4-for-4 with two RBI and scored a run. Laukka hit a home run and had a double with two RBI in a 2-for-3 performance. Catcher Jazzmyn Shelton also had two hits. Lexi Palazzo (RBI) and Sydney McDonald added one hit apiece in the victory. In the opening game loss, starting pitcher Kara Kight (7 IP, 6ER, 11H, 2BB, 1K) went the distance in the circle. Six Chargers — Mya Adams (RBI), McDonald (RBI), Mallory Alford, Laukka, Alexis Davis, and Gani — finished with one hit each. Despite the loss, Georgia Military stays atop the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association standings with a 32-13 overall record and 16-2 conference mark. Third place Georgia Highlands (21-15, 12-8) plays a conference doubleheader Saturday at Gordon College in Barnesville.
