Landa Dominy slides safely into third base.

Yogi Berra coined the phrase “It’s like Déjà vu all over again.” That describes how Wednesday’s 3-AA softball tournament games went. For the second straight year, Bleckley made it to the finals but had no answer for Dodge County.

Tied at 2 against East Laurens, Landa Dominy’s third inning double put BCHS ahead. Still 3-2 in the bottom of the sixth, two runs scored on a dropped fly ball hit by Jordan Williams. The Lady Royals held on 5-2. Abbey Sims went 2 for 3. Aliyah Whitehead was 2 for 4.

BC then took on Dodge County for first place. A runner at third with one out was left stranded. Three errors contributed to a five-run Lady Indian home half. Sims led off the second with a double but did not score. She would be their last baserunner of the game. Dodge scored three in home half of the second, then used consecutive two-run innings to win 12-0.

Sitting L-R: Aliyah Whitehead, Jordan Williams. Kneeling L-R: Arie Williams, Ashlyn Williams, Bailey Odom, Caroline Thrower. Standing L-R: Coach Phillip Hart, Tori Long, Landa Dominy, Miranda Pearson, Jayla Willis, Riley Edge, Emily Sanders, Abbey Sims, head coach Teresa Gray, coach Katie Beard.

Sims and Whitehead accounted for the only hits as well as baserunners, each going 1 for 2. BCHS will host an opening round series of the state playoffs starting October 11 against the third seed from 4-AA. Details will be announced when known.
