Lady Royals Win Region 3-AA Softball Title

Lady Royals Win Region 3-AA Softball Title

Last year, Bleckley and Southeast Bulloch met in the semifinals of the Region 3-AA playoffs.  BCHS run-ruled the Lady Jackets in both games.  A much tougher SEB team played BC Wednesday for the Region 3-AA championship.  But with tough defense and clutch hitting, the Lady Royals swept their way to a region title.

Marlee Bryan's third-inning single tied things in game one.  In the fourth, SEB had two on with no out.  After a sac bunt moved runners into scoring position, Bryan struck out the next two batters, ending the threat.  A double play in the fifth helped quell a bases loaded, no outs jam.  Bleckley would be unable to capitalize on a two on, two out, opportunity in their half of the fifth.
