POSTED: July 14, 2007 5:03 a.m.
BRUNSWICK — After suffering an 11-0 defeat to start the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association District 2 softball tournament, the Liberty County Recreation Department’s Mite team won two straight games Thursday before being eliminated by Douglas late Thursday afternoon.
With the Mites’ loss, the All-star softball season is finished. Baseball concluded Tuesday.
LCRD Director Jimmy Martin said he was proud to see the teams compete and it was a great spring sports season.
Wednesday, the Mites could not get anything going at the plate and had a difficult time in the field, losing 11-0 to Wayne County in three innings.
Victoria Anthony got the team’s lone hit with a bunt single in the third inning.
Wayne struck early, scoring six runs in the first inning, all with two outs.
Wayne tacked on two more runs in the second inning and three more in the third to finish the game.
The Mites, however, came back Thursday morning with a vengeance, defeating Glynn County 14-1.
That was followed with a 15-3 shellacking of Camden.
Next, Liberty County played Douglas in the quarterfinals, but the 9-and 10-year old girls fell a couple runs shy of making the semifinals, losing 13-11.
In Midget action, LC lost 13-7 to St. Simons Island Wednesday and then lost 9-2 to Wayne County Thursday to be eliminated.
The GRPA District 2 Tournament proved to be tough for Liberty County as only two teams picked up wins. The Mite softball team, coached by Jennifer Coonrod won two games and the Junior baseball team, coached by Mike Wells won a game.
