Lady Gators finish as district runner-up

 Home field was no solution for the Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School softball team last week.

As a result the Lady Gators will hit the road for the Region 1-1A playoffs.

Wewahitchka, which entered the tournament as the top seed, lost 7-1 to visiting Sneads in the District 2-1A title game last Friday.

The Lady Gators, as district runner-up, will be on the road Tuesday at Ponce de Leon for the region quarterfinals.

It was a disappointing end to the tournament, which Wewahitchka hosted.

The Lady Gators opened the tournament with a 12-0 rout of Altha.

Brianna Bailey paced the Lady Gators, tossing five innings of no-hit ball while striking out 10 of the 19 batters she faced in the game shortened under the mercy rule.
