James Clemens softball bested rival Bob Jones 6-2 on Tuesday 4/17 in the sixth annual Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Awareness game. Freshman pitcher Kaitlin Childress worked out of a jam in the first inning surrendering only one run and leaving two stranded. The Patriots did not threaten again before scoring their final run in the top of the seventh inning. By that time, the Jets had ridden the hot bat of senior Mattie Chaffin, who had 3 hits and 3 RBIs on the day to a commanding lead.
The Jets overall record is 23-13 on the season, 2-4 in Area 8 play. The Jets are ranked 10th in the most recent Alabama Sportswriters Association poll.
