BCHS sought to shake off yesterday’s bad outing against Dodge as well as gain momentum for next week’s state playoffs Thursday afternoon against the Academy For Classical Education Gryphons. However, the Lady Royals struggled again.
Trinity Glover receives the throw.
BC was down 5-0 before a third inning Clara Rickerson sac fly. Trailing 8-1 in the fourth, a run on an error was the only score when Bleckley loaded the bases with one out.
