  • Harriman Middle softball teams...

    The Harriman Middle School Lady Devils took the field last Tuesday evening as they hosted the Lady Bulldogs from Wartburg Central Middle School and picked up a convincing 9-1 win.

    After losing to an unbeaten Coalfield Middle School last Monday night for their second loss of the season, Harriman bounced back with the victory over Wartburg.

    “We went through some hitting drills before the game on Tuesday.” Said co head coach Chasity Lowery.

    The Lady Devils for sure benefited from it on Tuesday night.
