Hayesville takes win over Lady Devils softball
The Swain County High School varsity softball team traveled to Hayesville on Tuesday for a conference game. The Lady Devils cinched the 6-5 win.
It was a true nail biter, with the teams trading the advantage back and forth. The Yellow Jackets started with 2 runs in the first inning, but Swain wasn’t far behind—taking 3 runs in the second to Hayesville’s one. Swain hit a dry spell in the third, though, until the seventh inning, while the Lady Yellow Jackets continued chipping away.
The loss brings the Lady Devils overall record to 13-4 and 8-4 in conference.
Last Thursday, the Lady Devils traveled to Andrews and took a 16-2 win over the Lady Wildcats.
Mazie Helpman led with three RBIs, followed by K. Chambers with two and Stacey Griggs, Savana Smith, Kendall Bowers, Ashton Younce with one each.
The Lady Devils will be on the road Friday to face Robbinsville.
