The Grundy County Lady Jackets lost their third District 7 AA games in as many decisions on the season against Sequatchie County at home last Tuesday night. It was also their third loss in a row on the season. Last Thursday, the Lady Jackets traveled to Spencer and battled the Lady Eagles of Van Buren in two five inning contests. The Lady Jackets took Game 1 in four innings 15 – 4, before dropping the nightcap 9 – 2. The Lady Jackets home contest last Monday against Huntland was postponed due to inclement weather and hasn’t been rescheduled as of yet.
The Lady Jackets traveled to Jasper Tuesday night to take on the Marion County Lady Warriors in another district game. Yesterday (Wednesday), they hosted Moore County. The Lady Jackets play Cumberland County next Tuesday, at 5 p.m., at home. On Wednesday, the Lady Jackets will entertain the Lady Tigers of Whitwell at 1 p.m., in front of the student body. The Lady Jackets are 2 – 5 on the regular season and 0 – 3 in district play.
