JCMS Lady Longhorns show strength against
The Johnson County Middle School Lady Longhorns battled No.1 seed Ridgeview in the opener of the 2019 Regional tournament last week.
Facing the undefeated (18-0) Ridgeview presented a sizable challenge for the girls, but not enough to back down from a fight.
The Lady Longhorns fought hard and earned Ridgeview’s respect as the girls held their ground for five innings before falling 13-3.
Hannah Fritts and Autumn Lewis each had two hits, and Autumn Shepherd had a big double to drive in two runs.
Amy Gunter added a hit to round out the Longhorn offensive attack, while Audrey Savery made a beautiful catch at the fence to rob Ridgeview’s big power hitter of her third home run.
The Lady Horns will be back on the field Saturday morning at 8 to defend their District crown.
