Winning comes a lot easier when you hit .800.
Bibb County went 4-0 in the Clarkdale Spring Fling softball tournament on Friday and Saturday, thanks in large part to Megan Terry's offensive explosion. Terry was 12-of-15 from the plate in Bibb County's four games, leading her team to the Pool 1 championship.
Terry was named the tournament's outstanding offensive player.
Bibb County's unblemished tournament record put them one game ahead of Clarkdale and Gautier for the pool championship.
Bibb County, Southaven, Eupora and Pascagoula each came away from the Clarkdale Spring Fling with pool championships.
Bibb County and Southaven both rolled to undefeated 4-0 records in the tournament, while Eupora and Pascagoula were 3-1 in their pools.
Union also finished with a 3-1 record in Eupora's pool, but lost the tie-breaker by virtue of Eupora's 10-2 win over the Lady Yellowjackets on Saturday. Clarkdale went 3-1 on the weekend and finished one game behind Bibb County in Pool 1.
