For the first time since 2012, the North Forsyth Lady Raiders are region champions.
The Lady Raiders Softball team was barely 24 hours removed from one of the most dramatic comebacks in school history, but Tuesday’s region clinching game was no less dramatic as North held on for a 5-3 win and a region championship series sweep over South Forsyth.
Hailey Mize again went the distance for North, finishing off a two-day stretch where she threw 220 pitches while piling up two complete-game victories.
North Forsyth, as the newly-minted region champion, will now take on the #4 seed from Region 8-AAAAAAA at Raider Field. Opponents, dates, and times will be announced later in the week.
Way to go, Lady Raiders!
FINAL: North Forsyth 5, South Forsyth 3. War Eagles had the tying run at second but Hailey Mize secures the final out — and the region — for the Raiders. pic.twitter.com/aqBmSL5PSR
