State softball playoffs in Sylvania Oct. 11

Hosting either 3AA No. 3 seed East Laurens or 3AA No. 4 seed Washington County, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Jim Randall Doyle will begin the Class AA state playoffs with a double header on Oct. 11 at the local field. 

Should there be a split there will be a third game on Thursday, Oct. 12.

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, after the Sylvania Telephone’s press deadline, the 18-7 Lady Gamecocks traveled to Harlem to face the 16-6 Lady Bulldogs in the opening two games of the Region 4AA championship series. 

A split on Oct. 4 and the third and deciding game for the title will be today, Oct 5, also in Harlem. The teams earned their way to the region winning series by sweeping first round series on Sept. 27. SCHS took the measure of Jefferson County 14-0 and 17-2, while Harlem routed Westside 23-0 and 20-0.

After picking up a forfeit in their final region contest against Glenn Hills on Sept. 26, the Lady Gamecocks, for the second consecutive season, squared off with Jeffco in the first round of 4AA playoffs. A nine-run first inning in game one and a three-spot in the first in the second were more than enough in each game.

Sophomore Sarah Beasley (9-4, 1.05) hurled a one-hit shutout in the first game, allowing one hit while striking out four and walking one while senior Kara Canetto (6-3, 2.30) threw a four-hitter, striking out six and walking two. 

Both games went four innings. In three games this season, SCHS outscored JCHS 46-2. 

Offensively, game one saw the Lady Gamecocks record 10 hits added to easily control the game from the outset. Canetto, Maggie Hafer, and GeeGee Beasley had two hits each. Hafer, an Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College commit, and Madison Lewis had three RBI each and Canetto had two.

Scoring “but” three in the first of game two (which saw SCHS as the visitors on the scoreboard) a seven spot on the board in the second and the rout was once again on. 

The scorebook featured 15 hits for the Lady Gamecocks this time around. Nine different players had hits and 10 scored runs. Lewis had three hits with Payton Ward, Canetto, Hafer, and Pamela Dixon had two hits each. Dixon, Sarah Beasley, and Canetto had two RBi each.

On Sept. 28, the team finished its regular season with a matchup with AAAA Cross Creek.

The Lady Razorbacks swept ARC in the first round of the 3AAAA playoffs by scores of 17-0 and 15-0 on Sept. 27, and were scheduled to meet Burke County in their region championship series that started Monday, Oct. 2. The game was actually a makeup of a Sept. 13 rainout.

The Lady Gamecocks put together one of their finest games of the season in a very impressive 10-2 win against Cross Creek.

There were another 13 hits including four by sophomore Meliyah Atkins, who had two triples and a double included in the four. Canetto also had three and Sarah Beasley had two.

Canetto had three RBI with Atkins and Hafer recording two each. Sarah Beasley had another complete game allowing three hits and striking out six.

With a team batting average of an amazing .393, SCHS had seven players in the starting lineup hitting better than .300 led by Canetto’s .605 (46-76) and Hafer’s .516 (33-64).

Also over .300 are Atkins at .400 (26-65); Sarah Beasley at .375 (24-64); Ward at .371 (26-70); Camille Seckinger at .368 (21-57); and GeeGee Beasley at .348 (24-69).
