Lady Bull­dogs win big on Se­nior Night

The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - Staff re­ports

The Cedar­town Lady Bull­dogs took time out to cel­e­brate a pair of se­niors slated to grad­u­ate this com­ing spring and who got one last reg­u­lar sea­son win in at home be­fore a reg­u­lar sea­son closer.

The Lady Bull­dogs took a 10-2 win over Sandy Creek for Se­nior Night and got to en­joy fes­tiv­i­ties with Tam­era Bee­man and Jameia Di­a­mond as the 2018 reg­u­lar sea­son was wind­ing down last week.

Af­ter a break fol­low­ing a loss to ri­val Rock­mart and then a high scor­ing game that ended in a four­run de­feat on Sept. 18 on the road at Troup County 18-14, the Lady Bull­dogs needed a big win.

They got it last Thurs­day against the Lady Pa­tri­ots in a game that in­cluded a dou­ble play for Bee­man, and a 2-run homer for Mary Brumby who drove in Alexus Poole.

Cedar­town’s reg­u­lar sea­son con­cludes this Tues­day af­ter press time with a trip to play at Chapel Hill and hopes of get­ting closer to even on the year, as the Lady Bull­dogs sit un­der .500 at 8-10 over­all, and 4-7 in re­gion play.

That put as the reg­u­lar sea­son winds down this week against a 19-4 Chapel Hill team who stands at 9-1 in the re­gion, and tied with Cen­tral for a first place spot.

The Lady Bull­dogs stand tied with Cartersville at 4-7.

Chapel Hill plays Cartersville on Mon­day af­ter press time, the fi­nal reg­u­lar sea­son game for the Lady Hur­ri­canes.

Re­gion tour­na­ment play for 5-AAAA be­gins on Sept. 29, and who the Lady Bull­dogs will end up play­ing first is to be de­ter­mined by the fi­nal stand­ings.
