Freshman third basemen Brinsley Screws, a Swainsboro native, is also tearing it up at the plate hitting .389 with 5 home runs and 33 RBI’s.

Brittany Middleton leads the pitching staff with 10 wins, 91 strikeouts and a 2.89 ERA.
The Lady Bobcats got off to a hot start this season, hit a lull at the midpoint, but seem to be hitting their stride at the right time. If the team can get solid pitching performances and some timely hitting, they could be walking away from this weekend’s tournament as GCAA Champions.
