After having a few tough losses in the GPC Spring Invitationals, the lady Jaguars managed to heat things up in the old diamond and take their first win of the season against Spartanburg Methodist College.
Sophomore Jessie Ramines showed off her power hits with a grand slam home run deep over the left field fence kissing the ball
goodbye. Pitcher Jordan Conwell lead the Lady Jags pitching a perfect game managing her changeups and controlling her breaking pitches.
“She kept us in the game and she didn’t waste a lot of pitches” said coach Ken Deyton who actively talked to the girls and motivated them every step.
By the fifth inning GPC had a lead of 2-0 when the fire quickly began to rise as fourteen Jaguars stepped to the plate and almost burned the scoreboard adding eight more runs.
The lady Jaguars battled a tough opening season after losing a Saturday game against Southern Union Community College 7-5 and having to cancel a couple of games because of weather conditions.
They will be traveling to Panama City the end of February for the Gulf Coast Beach Classic Tournament and will not be playing a home game until March 19. Best of Luck to The Lady Jaguars!
