LC softball by the numbers

Lincoln County High School’s Lady Falcons split in district action last week. Monday, the ladies won on the road over Franklin County, 4-1.

Tuesday, the ladies let one slip away, going down to Tullahoma at home, 9-8. Lincoln County was up 8-2 at the end of six, but the Lady ‘Cats had a big inning in the top of the seventh, plating 7 runs. With the strength of the order up, the ladies got the tying run on the bag but failed to score in the bottom half of the inning. All of Tullahoma’s runs were unearned.

Lincoln County was to have hosted Lawrence County on Thursday, but that game was postponed due to rain.
