Lady Gators Sweep Flowery Branch

The Lady Gator Softball team swept Flowery Branch yesterday afternoon to advance to Elite 8 and will travel to Columbus next week for finals of the GHSA State Softball Championships.

Valerie Ortiz hopes every outing could go as well as Wednesday, as Ortiz struck out 13 batters to carry Ware County to a 2-1 victory over Flowery Branch in seven innings.

Ware County held off Flowery Branch , as Flowery Branch was unable to overcome a two-run fourth inning deficit.

Flowery Branch scored one run in the fifth on an error. Despite its efforts, Flowery Branch couldn't finish the comeback.

The lead stayed with Ware County Gators Varsity after the fourth, when it scored two runs on a groundout by Sierra Taylor and an RBI single by Cullee Peavey.

Flowery Branch scored its only run of the game on an error in the fifth inning.
