Lady Pirates  in Elite 8

The Appling County High School Lady Pirates softball team is Columbus bound once again. The Lady Pirates defeated Josey and Berrien in the AA Super Regional Tournament last week to advance to the Elite 8 in the AA State Tournament, held in Columbus. The first game for Appling is Wednesday, and they will face Rockmart High School at 11:00 a.m. The Lady Pirates are looking to repeat last year’s State Championship performance. Fans are encouraged to travel over to Columbus to show your support. Good luck, Lady Pirates; we are cheering for you. (The News-Banner will not be allowed, by the Georgia High School Association, to broadcast/livestream any of the finals. We will try to provide updates throughout the week on our Facebook page.)
