On Tuesday March 27, the Cannon County Jr. Lionettes softball team hosted the Middle Tennessee Christian School Cougars from Rutherford County. The Jr. Lionettes defeated the MTCS Cougars in both the varsity and JV contests.
The varsity won 10–2 and the JV defeated the MTCS JV 12-2.
In the varsity game, strong pitching, batting and base running were too much for the MTCS Cougars to overcome. Pitcher Jessica Elmy put in another strong performance by striking out 12 from the mound. Kallie McCrary was 3 for 3 and Ally Parton was 2 for 2 to lead the batting in the varsity contest.
The JV game saw a similar performance from the Jr. Lionettes. Pitcher Kallie McCrary notched 5 strikeouts from the mound. Batting was very strong in the JV contest as well as Rachel Pate, Raquel Novova, Danielle White, Bailey Knox, and Konner Duke all made significant contributions batting wise to the overall team effort.
