MACON – The fast pitch softball game between Starkville Academy and Central Academy on Monday wasn't going well for the visiting Lady Volunteers.
Facing a big deficit was not something Starkville Academy wanted in the second game of the season, but coach Kayla Mosley saw it as an opportunity to keep working and keep teaching.
Sarah Morgan Pellum started off the fifth inning with a single, then stole second base.
With two outs, Mallory Barber stepped to the plate and delivered a single to plate the fifth run of the game for the Lady Vols.
Mosley stressed to her team the importance of winning the "little battles" despite losing to the Lady Vikings 22-5 and could have used Barber's late RBI hit as an example.
"No matter what, you've got to compete," Mosley said. "I was asking them who do you want to be? What type of player do you want to be? Do you want to compete or do you want to give up? What I want to see from us every game is to compete and win the little battle every time."
