It was senior night at Monty Stratton Field Tuesday and the Greenville Lady Lions softball team honored Arian Alford, Sidney Tippit, Elizabeth Rutherford and Ashley Walden in pre-game ceremonies.
Denison then spoiled the Lady Lions' home finale, handing them a 10-4 loss.
Greenville led 2-0 after two innings. But the Lady Jackets scored eight runs on four hits and a couple of Greenville errors in the third inning to take control.
“We had one bad inning,” said Greenville head coach Randy Pierce. “We had mental mistakes. Outside of that we played our game. We competed but we let this one slip by. We want to congratulate our seniors for all their hard work.”
Katie McMurray and Kaitlyne McNair both got two hits for Greenville. McMurray drove in two runs, while McNair drove in one run for Greenville.
Taylor Cordova, Cortney Luna and Arian Alford all got base hits for Greenville.
The Lady Lions fell to 1-13 in district, while Denison improved to 5-8.
