The Milledgeville Missiles softball team picked up this spring right where it left off last June, pounding out 12 hits to back Morgan Adolph’s two-hit, 10-strikeout performance in a season-opening 12-2 victory over West Carroll in Thomson.

Kayleigh Leddy had four hits and three RBIs, Jenna Bibler also drove in three runs, and Adolph (1-0) and Bre Henson each drove in two runs. The Missiles (1-0) took control with a five-run first inning, then finished things off with a four-run seventh.

Monica Smith provided the lone RBI for the Thunder (0-1), as both runs were unearned. Cassidy Rice (0-1) took the loss in the circle, allowing seven earned runs in a complete-game effort.
