REIDSVILLE — Southeast Bulloch got a complete-game effort from Blair Chapman as the Lady Yellow Jackets notched an impressive 2-1 win over Tattnall County on Tuesday in Reidsville.
“We weren’t sure what to expect,” SEB coach Aimee Civalier said. “Tattnall is a good team on the other side of our region. They return almost everyone from last season, so getting this win was big for us.”
Mary Grace Manahan recorded two hits and an RBI while Emma Britt and Leah McCarthy also recorded a pair of hits each and both scored a run.
Chapman was on top of her game both on the mound and in the batter’s box. The freshman laced a single to knock in what turned out to be the game-winning run.
“That was a great effort for a freshman,” Civalier said. “We have a number of freshman who have stepped up and played really well these first few games.”
Southeast Bulloch gets a few days off before returning to Reidsville for this weekend’s tournament hosted by Tattnall County.
