Missiles take two

Baseball, softball teams roll past Thunder

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.
