  • The Galatia-Thompsonville High School softball team won their 11th straight game, knocking off Gallatin County 16-1 in Greater Egyptian Conference play Tuesday.
    The Bearcats now stand at 16-1 overall and 6-0 in league play as Larissa Bond improved to 6-2 with a two hitter. The senior right hander gave up back-to-back doubles in the first inning to Gallatin County’s Kristen Jester and Caitlin Lynch after settling to finish with 10 strikeouts.
    Emily Reed paced the Bearcat offense at the plate, pounding out three hits and knocking in three runs.
    Madison Fletcher, Elizabeth Sloan and Katie Jones all went 2-for-3, while Jones drove in three, including a two-run home run in the third inning.
    Kylee Brown finished 2-for-2 with an RBI and Hunter Lane went 1-for-1 with a pair of RBI.
    “The girls came out and played hard today,” head coach Kevin Lewis said. “We adjusted well at the plate and sometimes it’s easy to play down to your competition. I didn’t feel like we did that today and now we get ready for Pope County Thursday.”
    That game will have big implications on the GEC regular conference title Thursday at Galatia High School. A win for the Bearcats would give them the season sweep over the Trojans and the outright GEC conference title.
    Carmi-White County 7, Eldorado 1
    CARMI — The Eldorado High School softball team mustered one hit, scoring one run in a 7-1 loss at Carmi-White County Tuesday.
    McKennah Bowen had the lone hit and scored the only run for the Eagles on an RBI by Sam Mings in a losing effort.
    Michaela Laswell took the loss as the senior went six innings, allowing six earned runs on eight hits, while striking out eight and walked two.
    Carmi jumped out to a 4-0 lead through the first three innings, before Eldorado responded with a run in the top of the fifth to cut the deficit to three.
    The Bulldogs responded with a three-run fifth inning to close out the game.
