The Kingston Lady Jackets traveled to Stone Memorial in their last regular season district game. Kingston needed the win to seal their fate as the number one team in District 4-AA, and a win is what the Lady Jackets got, winning by a final of 6-2.
Kingston fell behind in the first inning as they could not get anything going at the plate and made one mental mistake on defense to allow Stone Memorial to take the led 1-0.
Lindsey Stickrod led off with a single to open what looked to be a promising second inning, but the Lady Panthers played good awareness on defense and held off the Kingston threat.
Kingston pulled even in the third. Rachel Coffey started the inning with a single and Morgan Snow stroked an RBI single up the middle to tie the game at 1-1.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, however, Casey Swafford launched a solo home run to give Stone Memorial the lead at 2-1.
Samantha Aycock would come in for Kingston at pitcher after the home run, and she retire the side.
In the top of the fifth, the Lady Jackets would finally break through as they batted around and put five runs on the board with RBIs coming off the bats of Kat Butler and TJ Wicks.
Both teams swapped a pair of hit in the sixth and seventh innings as Kingston won by a final of 6-2.
Briley Garrett (3-4) and Wicks (2-4, 2 RBIs) had multiple hits on the day for Kingston.
With the No. 1 seed in the upcoming tourney, the Lady Jackets will receive a first round bye. The tournament schedule hasn’t been finalized, but Kingston is expected to play on Saturday or Monday, weather permitting.
