Starkville Academy softball

Starkville Academy’s Sarah Montgomery bunts the softball.

There was no quit in the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers on Thursday afternoon.

Playing against an inspired Hebron Christian squad, the Lady Vols rallied from a three-run deficit in the fifth inning and defeated the Lady Eagles 9-8.

“Our girls kept competing and had some good at-bats at the end from some young girls, which is big,” Starkville Academy softball coach Thomas Berkery said. “We had some eighth graders getting on base and ended up getting to the top of the order.”
