On Wednesday, the Warren Welding U14 Southern Belles defeated Reeds Spring White 15-0. With Ashley McCullough's mega-homerun, along with aggressive base running and pitching by Skyler Skates, the Belles put the game away early.

The Belles are now 5-1 on the season.

Also on Tuesday, the Bombers played a great game against Forsyth. With the starting two pitchers for Berryville out on vacation, Callie Harp stepped up and had an outstanding game.

She gave up three runs before hitting her groove and helping her team post a 10-4 victory with help from a strong performance behind the plate by Shayla Franklin.

Tanner Harp came in and closed the game, giving up only two hits and no runs in the final inning.

Offensively the Bombers were lead with big hits from Hannah Pruente and Shayla Franklin.
