Lady Raiders dozen, a dandy
Benton Academy earned the second place seed in their Single A district Monday after a convincing 9-1 win over Humphreys Academy.
More importantly, the girls softball team are in the playoffs for the 12th consecutive season.
The bad news is their first round opponent is Bayou Academy, a team that has rolled the series between the two teams overthe last three years.
Benton (14-16) was coming off their worst weekend on the year head coach Vince Davis said, and if they were going to make the post season, they were going to have to turn it around.
“The girls got together before the game without me knowing and told each other they were going to win this game no matter what,” Davis said.
That little pep talk turned into near perfect performance by the Lady Raiders, who committed just one base running and one fielding error on the night.
