Bryson City – Swain scored 3 runs on Tuesday, but it would prove to be enough as senior ace Stacey Griggs pitched a gem. Griggs scattered 2 hits and struck out 16 while walking 2 on her way to earning her 3rd win of the season. Griggs’ 16 strikeouts is a new career high for the senior, eclipsing her mark of 14 she set earlier this season against Cherokee.
The Lady Devils got on the board in the 4th. Brayden Taylor doubled to open the inning. Stacey Griggs doubled to score Taylor just one batter later. Amelia Clough entered to run for Griggs and advanced to 3rd on an Ashley Stevenson ground out. Kele Eagleman got a two out single that scored Clough from 3rd.
Swain added an insurance run in the 6th. Savana Smith doubled to right centerfield, and then advanced to 3rd on a passed ball, where she scored on an Ashley Stevenson ground out.
Kele Eagleman was 2-2 with an rbi, while Griggs and Ashley Stevenson drove in the other Swain runs.
