'Battle in the Boro' tourney begins Friday at Mill Creek
082909 HS SOFTBALL 02
Screven County ace Marla Thompson lets one fly against South Effingham Saturday at Mill Creek Regional during the 2009 'Battle in the Boro'.
Softball season is underway, but before teams from around the state dive into their region schedules, 12 teams from all parts of Georgia will descend on Statesboro for the Battle in the Boro which starts this afternoon and continues through tomorrow at Mill Creek Regional Park. The tournament, hosted by Statesboro High, has become an annual event for teams looking to get some extra games into their schedule and has become a great recruiting tool for softball programs in the area. “This is a great opportunity for everyone in the area to come out and enjoy some softball,” said Statesboro coach Jim Simmons.
