The Hernando softball team defeated visiting East Lake High School by a score of 2-0. The Lady Leopards were led by freshmen pitcher Ava Braswell, who pitched a complete game shutout giving up only four hits while striking out four. The Purple and Gold made some great defensive plays late, including a diving stop by second baseman Jadyn Wright, that stopped the Lady Eagles from getting something started in the fifth inning. Solaris Genberg led the way at the plate for the Lady Leopards as she collected two of the teams five hits. Savannah Ellis, Aryn O’Berry and Wright collected the other hits. Wright and O’Berry each had an RBI.
