After an early morning bus ride to Monroe, Indiana to Adams Central High School it was time for Lady Indian softball. In game 1 The Lady Indians played the Adams Central Flying Jets. Erika Foy would take the mound and early in the game the Lady Indians trailed 1-0 after the first inning. In the top of the 2nd the Lady Indians would score 2 runs to make it 2-1. In the bottom half of the inning the Flying Jets would come back to tie the game at 2-2. Later in the game 5th Inning the Lady Indians would tally up 3 runs and give themselves what seemed to be a comfortable lead at 5-2. But the lead wouldn’t be comfortable because here came the Flying Jets. In the bottom of the 6th the Flying Jets would tie the game at 5-5. In the bottom of the 7th the Flying Jets had the game winning run on 3rd with 1 out. A fly ball to right fielder Amaya David would be caught the runner tagged from 3rd but she would be thrown out at the plate to end the 7th inning tied at 5. In the 8th Inning base running errors would cause havoc for the Lady Indians taking away their opportunities to score. In the Bottom half a double to the right centerfield gap with one out would set up another great opportunity for the Flying Jets. This time they would capitalize a ground ball that hit the 3rd base bag would go to the outfield which plated the runner from 2nd giving Adams Central a 6-5 win over the Lady Indians. The Lady Indians would also fall to Angola in game 2.
