Nicole Klucharich

Athletics Intern

Tuesday's double-header went in favor of the Lenoir-Rhyne Bears (Mar 12th). YHC created opportunities at the plate but left a few too many runners on base to match the LRU offense.

The Mountain Lions move to 12-10 overall, while the Bears move to 25-5 overall and are 2-0 in the SAC. YHC will head to Southern Wesleyan University this Friday (Mar 15th) to face their first Conference Carolinas opponent of the season. First pitch is scheduled for 2PM in the double-header.

· Young Harris fell to Lenoir-Rhyne 3-4.

· Adda Prescott started things off for the Bears in the second inning with an RBI double to left field. Lenoir-Rhyne went up 1-0.

· In a combined effort, Hannah Carey (2-3) and Gracie Hughes attacked at the plate for YHC. Carey doubled to right center and Hughes singled to right to take the lead 2-1.
