BANKS COUNTY

The Lady Leopards (27-9) could not have asked for a better start, pounding out a 7-0 win over Harlem in the opener. Remember that Harlem featured a highly-touted electric offense that Tybee Denton and Banks County shut down.

Next up for the girls, Dodge County on Friday afternoon at 12:30 PM. The game was originally slated for last night, but rain pushed all evening games to Friday.

Both Banks and Dodge (29-4) are in the winner’s bracket, with the winner advancing to play the Social Circle/Monticello winner at 7:30 PM Friday night. The Dodge/Banks loser will play at 5:45 in an elimination game. Should Banks County win, it would play either Social Circle or Monticello, both of whom are 8-AA region foes. This Elite 8 contains those three teams from 8-AA.

Dodge County features a big-time offensive threat in senior Jacey Dowdy (.403 AVG – 4 HR – 38 RBI) and fellow senior Abby Manning (.506 AVG – 2 HR – 19 RBI – 13 2B). Dowdy is also the go-to ace pitcher (19-3, 1.39 ERA, 92 K)

Brantley County (22-4) is fresh off a 2-1 win over powerhouse Calhoun, and have now won 18 of its last 19. The Lady Dragons though have also won 11 of their last 12 and 8 in a row after yesterday’s win.
