Sweetwater brings bitter end to DCHS
Braya Murphy
Braya Murphy takes a hard cut at a pitch during the early innings of the sub-state tournament game hosted by the Tigerettes this past week. DeKalb County, which had won both its district and region, was eliminated by the visiting Sweetwater squad 7-4.
Things were looking bright when Kenzie France jacked a two-run homer over the left field fence in the third inning, giving the Tigerettes a 4-1 advantage going into the fourth inning of their sub-state showdown with the visiting Sweetwater Wildcats. But a Sweetwater rally brought a bitter end to the DeKalb County season as a big fifth and sixth inning sent the visitors on to the state finals and ended the Tigerette season by a score of 7-4 – a season that saw the DeKalb County squad win both its district and regional tournaments. The game against Sweetwater began evenly as both teams put up a run on the board the first inning.
