BHS seniors hold their own on Senior Night

MILLEDGEVILLE — Playing at Georgia College’s home field, the Baldwin High softball team came up just shy of a win on Monday, falling 10-9 to Twiggs County on the teams’ Senior Night.

While the Bravettes have struggled this season, head coach Donnie Coburn was encouraged by the play of his girls on Monday and pleased with sending off of the team’s eight seniors.

“I felt like we did really well,” Coburn said. “I felt like for the ceremony we did, it was one of our better ones, as far as recognizing our seniors.”

Coburn started seven of the eight seniors in the contest, all of which gave strong efforts to keep BHS within one run of Twiggs at the end of the night.

“It was their chance to shine. I thought they did extremely well,” he said. “Twiggs had a decent pitcher. We only had four regular starters in there, but I felt like the seniors held their own and had a pretty good night overall.”

Pitching the first two innings for BHS was Haley Horton, who went two innings and earned three strikeouts, relieved by Rachel Tavarus who finished the last three innings and snagged six strikeouts.

Hannah Tamayo led the seniors on the night offensively, going 3-for-3 at the plate with three RBI, followed by Leigh Grimes who was 1-for-3 at bat.

Ty Williams helped the Bravettes’ offense on Monday, as she was 1-for-3 with an RBI, and Rachel Tavarus went 1-for1 with a double and an RBI.

“I felt like Hannah Tamayo, who has been injured all year long, had her best game all year,” Coburn said. “Ty Williams hitting the inside-the-park home run early on, I just felt like Hannah and Ty played really well.”

Competing on a collegiate field, Coburn is grateful that the Bravette seniors had the opportunity to see and utilize state-of-the-art facilities.
