BA devours Lady Saints

The Brookhaven Academy Lady Cougars devoured the Prentiss Christian Lady Saints to claim a huge 19-5 district victory Tuesday night in MAIS softball action.

“The girls played really hard and did a good job putting the ball into play,” said BA coach Kaylin Lofton. “It feels great to win our first district game.”

The Lady Cougars (3-9, 1-0) resume action Saturday. They will be participating in Parklane’s softball tournament.
