Buford hosted fellow Region 8-AAAAAA opponent Winder-Barrow on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at the Buford Softball Complex. Even a rain delay could not dampen Buford’s bats as they beat Winder-Barrow 10-2. The game was called after the fifth inning due to the run rule.
Sophomore Emma Grace Williams (4-0) was the winning pitcher for the Lady Wolves. She pitched five innings, gave up five hits and two earned runs. Plus she struck out three batters but walked one.
