Softball State Championship Recap

By Aiden Mihill

COLUMBUS, GA – Lassiter defeated River Ridge, 7-4, to become State champions for the second year in a row. Gracyn Tucker had a 3-run home run and Ellie Kean launched a 2-run shot for the Trojans, as they capped off a run beating Winder-Barrow, Glynn Academy, Creekview, Cambridge and River Ridge to take the 6A title. The Knights led 2-0 after 4 innings, but a 5-run 5th gave the Trojans a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Lillian Holhouser added an RBI as well, to cap off the Trojans’ 34-2 season. Congratulations to Trojan Softball!
