The rain has washed away many of the scheduled outdoor contests for softball and tennis in the county but a few games managed to squeeze in between the raindrops.
This week is the last week before Gadsden County schools close for spring break week March 17-21.
Aucilla Christian Academy’s pitcher kept the Munroe Lady Cats hitting off balance until late in the game. In the meantime, the Warriors’ hitting jumped in early as they struck for six runs in the first three innings.
Munroe managed two runs in the bottom of the sixth. Four different players accounted for one hit each: Maddey Pappadakis, Mary Pat Thomas, Hannah Wilde and Jeri Sloan. Pappadakis and Wilde each scored a run and Sloan took the loss on the mound. The sophomore righty walked six and struck out none.
Munroe dropped to 5-4 on the season. Their game with Liberty County was rained out on Thursday night. This week they play at East Gadsden on Tuesday at 5:00, host Blountstown on Thursday at 6:00 and play at North Bay Haven in Panama City on Friday.
