Bartley leans on defense, Lady Bulldogs edge Lady Blue Jays

October 17th, 2013 in News

Even though Abby Bartley's strikeout totals weren't nearly as lofty as Sarah Handrahan's, Bartley emerged with the edge.

Bartley and Handrahan both delivered a pair of two-hit outings in Wednesday night's Class 2 sectional, but South Callaway was aggressive in profiting from two mistakes by Jefferson (Festus) as the Lady Bulldogs outlasted the Lady Blue Jays in a 2-1 victory.

The win sends South Callaway (22-4) back to the Class 2 quarterfinals for a second straight year. The Lady Bulldogs will be on the road for that game when they travel to Highland (20-7) on Saturday. Game time has not yet been determined.

Highland shut out Louisiana 8-0 in a sectional game Wednesday night.
