GJHS softball takes second

Playing their first games of the year, the Grove Junior High softball team overcame early season mistakes to take second in the Jay Softball Tournament held last Wednesday and Thursday.

The junior Lady Red received a bye in the first round and then defeated Locust Grove 1-0. After a 10-2 loss to Jay GJHS bounced back for a 9-1 win over Kansas, only to fall once again to Jay in a hard-fought 10-9 loss in the championship game.
