Mountain Ridge Softball fought a tough battle against Hamilton on Tuesday. Hamilton is rated as one of the top teams in the country, but the Mountain Lions gave them all they could handle. Ridge led the game the entire way, but just came up short at the end.
With Ashley Williams again leading the offense, hitting 3 for 4, and Riley Seegan hitting a Solo Home Run, Ridge had the lead 6-5 going into the bottom of the 5th. After an outstanding defensive play by Mackenzie Whitten and with 2 outs in the inning, Hamilton was able to take the lead and hold Ridge off the board the rest of the way for the win.
Tiffany Williams went the distance in the circle, pitching a great game and containing a powerful offensive team, which not many pitchers have been able to do against Hamilton.
