Lady Devils Off To Fast Start

August 17, 2010

Our Lady Devils Fast Pitch Softball Team won their first two games of 2010 at last weekend's Laney Tip-Off Tournament.

The Lady Devils turned a double play against the Academy of Richmond County (ARC) girls, during the Laney Tournament. Shown in the photos are second base player Dasha Bussey recovering the batted ball, then tossing to short-stop Bethany Beggs for the out on second, who connected with Ivey Aycock at first base to complete the double play. The Lady Devils won against Hephzibah Friday 6-4, then defeated ARC 7-5 on Saturday before coming up short 6-4 against always strong Aquanis later in the day.

The Lady Devils played a double header against Westside High School Tuesday, and will host Laney at 5:00 Thursday. The game will be the first for the Lady Devils at their new home field located just off Charles Ward Elam Street on the new high school campus. The following Tuesday they will travel to Augusta for a second match against ARC.
