GHC scored three more runs in the fifth inning. Georgia Military made its last attempt at a comeback in the seventh inning, with one last run.

GHC was not as successful in the first game of the day at 1 p.m. losing 11-7.

“This game showed us exactly what we need to improve to get ready for post-season, and now it’s up to us to make the proper adjustments so we can compete and try to make it to the national tournament” said Melissa Wood, GHC softball head coach.

At the April 4 game, the GHC softball team raised $560 for Stomp Out Cancer. GHC jerseys and raffle tickets were sold to raise the money. This cause was especially important to the GHC softball team because Jerrica Medlin, former GHC player, lost her father, Andy Littlejohn, to cancer last summer. In honor of Littlejohn, the GHC softball team wore his name on their jerseys during the game.

“All in all, it was a very emotional day, and I am glad we could a get a win after the start we had in the first game,” said Liz Prance, GHC softball third basemen.

Prance continued, “It was an honor to have the Littlejohn family there in the stands.”
