Canes Seeded First For Region

Canes Seeded First For Region

LOUISBURG -- Courtesy of a phenomenal regular season, the Louisburg College Lady Hurricanes will arrive at the Region X Softball Tournament with a collective bull's-eye on their backs.
That's what happens when you post a 32-6 overall record and drop just one game in league play en route to winning the regular season championship.
But while the regular season run was certainly a thrilling ride, the memories won't be quite as abundant if LC isn't able to finish the job by taking the tournament and earning a spot in the districts in early May.

BELL HAS A BLAST

BUNN - Only a handful of players have blasted an over-the-fence home run at the Bunn High School softball field -- but Ladycat sophomore Emily Bell did the next-best thing during last Wednesday's home softball meeting with rival Louisburg.
With two outs and the bases clear in the bottom of the eighth inning, Bell ended the marathon with an improbable inside-the-park homer to send the Ladycats to a 5-4 thriller over Louisburg at the BHS Softball Field.

GREAT 8 FOR BHS

BUNN -- After several years of collecting dust, the scoreboard at the Bunn High School Soccer Complex is finally working after being repaired.
But it took awhile for the Bunn Ladycats to get the numbers to add up on the scoreboard during last Thursday's home non-conference meeting with backyard rival Louisburg.
During the squads' meeting one week earlier, the outing was ended early due to the mandatory nine-goal rule.

LC Drops A Pair

LOUISBURG -- Under past circumstance, this weekend's four-game baseball series between Louisburg College and University of South Carolina-Salkehatchie would simply feature two clubs playing out the regular season string before the annual Region X Tournament.
But the stakes are much higher this spring as the region has revamped its postseason formula.
Under the new rules in the six-team league, the top two clubs in the regular season earn first-weekend tournament byes.
