Title slips away
Megan Walker dives
Jacob Dodd photo Tigerette Megan Walker lays out for a line drive that manages to get under her glove in the late innings against Livingston Academy Sunday. The Lady Wildcats came back to beat DeKalb with a seventh-inning rally, winning 20-18.
A seventh-inning swoon Sunday afternoon cost the Tigerettes not only their game with Livingston Academy, 20-18, but also any chance of grabbing a share of the regular season district title. Things looked sunny for the Tigerette softball squad as the sun dipped low in the sky, the home squad holding an 18-12 lead in their high scoring affair with the Lady Wildcats. At stake was a shot at a share of the district title if they could beat Livingston Academy, who they had already defeated earlier this season, and then figure out a way to knock off the Upperman Bees, who had stung them in their prior meeting this year, accounting for DeKalb’s only district loss.
