On Tuesday, September 10, the Appling County Lady Pirates Softball team held a home game against the Ware County Lady Gators.
At the beginning the Lady Gators took off with a lead, but it did not take long for the Lady Pirates to catch up. The game stayed very close, but the Lady Pirates stayed strong and determined throughout every inning.
The Pirates did not give up the fight as they scored three runs in the later innings to take the lead 8-5. They held the Lady Gators in their place in the last inning and completed the game with a victory.
After the game the night ended with many tears as five seniors, Mikela Barlow, Karlee Carter, Ashley Sikes, Kayla Hunter and Brittany Moore, celebrated their last year as a Lady Pirate.
