Off Night 

On a night of uncharacteristic mistakes the Lady Mavs were outlasted by the Byrnes Lady Rebels and eventually picked up their first loss of the season. The mistakes allowed Byrnes to produce 16 base runners with only 7 hits which resulted finally in four runs and a 4-2 win for the Lady Rebels. 

Offensively DeeDee Sullivan and Kaitlyn Wagers each contributed two hits while Christina Storch and Katie Hensonprovided a single each of their own.  The Lady Mavs’ best opportunity came in the 4th inning when the team picked up a walk followed by three straight singles.  However this was followed by three straight infield ground balls ending the inning with Lady Mavs receiving their only two runs.  

Defensively Mauldin was led by Cheyenne Galli and Emma Swearingen combining for six assists and 3 put-outs whileHannah Pullias added three left field catches.  Amanda Storch added three strike-outs from the pitching circle.  However the team set season-highs in errors, passed balls, and hit batters – which proved too much for the defense to overcome.
