Junior Lady Cards Drop First Tourney Game to Eventual Champs
Saturday morning found the NCOE Lady Cardinal softball team traveling to Fairfield to take part in the Lady Colts 12 team tournament. NCOE was placed in the White Pool where they were set to play Jasper County-Newton, Cisne, and Jasper-Geff. First for NCOE would be Jasper County-Newton. Unaware of what this team was like, it did not take NCOE long to find that their first game would be against the eventual tournament champions. Although the Lady Cardinals battled hard, the much larger and stronger Newton team proved to be too much for NCOE as they fell by the final score of 14-3.
