Chargers wrap up '22 softball season with two walk-off wins


Georgia Highlands College softball concluded the 2022 season Saturday at Stars Field with a pair of dramatic, walk-off wins over visiting Gordon State, 16-15 and 8-7.


Although the two wins left the Chargers short of qualifying for the GCAA conference tournament, they were able to send off their 2022 sophomores in style.


Trailing 15-13 in the bottom of the seventh of the opener, Alli Deweese belted a three-run home run to lift the Chargers to a 16-15 victory.


In the second game of the day, Haley Robinson worked all seven innings in the circle before delivering a solo shot in the bottom of the frame for an 8-7 win. It was her second homer of the game.


Hailey Cronic completed the doubleheader with six hits including three doubles and one RBI. Deweese followed with five hits including a pair of homers and six RBIs. Robinson produced four hits on the day including her two solo homers. Madison Dennis also smacked a pair of home runs and finished the day with four RBIs. Kyndal Brown drove in a pair of runs on two hits including a double.


Annsley Todd (HR, 2RBIs), Haley Overton (HR, 3RBIs), Audrey Johnson (HR, 3 RBIs), Bradey Tharp, and Taylor Justice added one hit each for the day.


Gordon State finished the regular season 24-17 overall and 15-9 in conference play. The Highlanders will be the No. 2-seed in the GCAA Championship Tournament Thursday and Friday at Strong Rock Christian School in Locust Grove.


Georgia Highlands finishes the year 16-36 overall and 9-15 in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association.
