Itís a light week schedule wise for the Lady Royals, just two games. Monday afternoon, the team was in Macon for a first-ever meeting against the A.C.E. (Academy of Classical Education) Gryphons.

Rebecca Bowling catches a foul pop.

Down 5-1 in the fourth, BC had two on with one out but couldnít score. It was 7-1 with two outs in the seventh when Darci Dillard hit a shot that sent the centerfielder back and would bounce off her hand for a two-run double. The Gryphons though got the run back in the home half.
