The 7th grade softball team added a tally to the win column last night against Creekside. Not even The Weather Channel app could predict the storm that was brewing in the Bulldogs dugout.  The cracks of their bats and a rolling thunder of Coach Price’s voice motivated the Dogs to rain in their 12 runs.  Addy Mock, Laniah Walkine, and Bailey Sanchez each had singles on the night.  Aubrey Gallagher had a double and had a great tag out at home, and Ava Grace Pogue stepped in to pitch and had a double on the night in addition to nearly hitting Coach Price (again) and third base runners (for the first time).   The girls hope to bring this jeans and jersey energy into their East vs. West game tonight.
