The Lady Gryphons, after
absorbing three straight losses
in conference play against
Bertie, Northern Nash, and
Wilson; bounced back and took
a game from Greenville Rose to
even their record at 5-5.
Scoring single runs in the
first, fourth, fifth, and sixth
innings, and holding Greenville
scoreless led to the 4-0 victory.
Rocky Mount was led by the
hitting of Diawana McNair and
Allison Sellars, and the RBI’s of
Amy Smith, Gail McClain,
Donna Barnhill, and Diawana
McNair.
Hurt by nine errors, the girls
dropped a close game to
Northeastern, 13-12. The Lady
Gryphons scored two runs in the
first inning and two more in the
third before the Northeastern
girls answered back with five
runs of their own in the fourth.
Rocky Mount picked up three
runs in the fifth to one for
Elizabeth City to go ahead 7-6.
But the sixth inning proved to
be the downfall of the Gryphons
PEPSI
as Northeastern scored seven
runs, while the Gryphons could
only pound out five. Rocky
Mount was led by the hitting of
Donna Arrington, Gail McClain,
Diawana McNair, Arlinda Har
rison, and Allison Sellars.
After picking up an end of the
season win against Northern
Nash and suffering a loss
against Wilson Fike, the girls
finished the season with a 6-7
record.
“We were hurt by inconsis
tency this year,” said Coach
Bradshaw. “We didn’t do as
well as ‘1 expected, but the team
was young.” With only two
starters graduating, Bradshaw
lotfks forward to next season.
