"We've been working on getting the lead and maintaining the lead," said Kesha Rasnick. "They bat- tled back and started piec- ing together their hits. We played good, solid defense. They were just into it. They came out with the right mindset today." The Lady Devils (2-8, 2-2) got a complete game in the circle from Gracie Hicks. "1 was feeling a little antsy coming in because I i , heard they were doing pret- t y. good season," Hicks said. "But I never doubted our team, so that helped." ,-., Hicks gave up one run on five hits with nine strikeouts. "Gracie did a great job today," Rasnick said. "Today was the best game she has pitched.

By Eliza Evans COEBURN - Kaylee Jones showed off her power from the leadoff spot in Eastside's 11-1, five-inning win over the J.I. Burton Lady Raiders. "She's got a beautiful swing, so when she hits it, it's just going to go," said Eastside head coach Suzi Atwood. "That was a nice way to start us off. I think it made everybody relax a lit- tie." Jones hit two home runs, giving the Lady Spartans a big boost last Wednesday. But Jones, who finished the day 2-for- 5, said she felt she could have done more. "I felt pretty good about it.
