Mountain Lions Softball Sweeps Erskine College in Mid-week Doubleheader

Spencer Mathis

Assistant Sports Information Director

The Mountain Lions softball squad has strung together four consecutive wins to move to 18-4 overall this season and 5-3 in Conference Carolinas games. YHC took on Erskine College on Wednesday (Mar. 27) afternoon at the YHC Softball Field in Young Harris; game one ended in the fifth inning on a walk-off on a Gracie Hughes two RBI single that earned the Mountain Lions their first 8-0 run-rule victory of the day. Game two ended in similar walk-fashion, this time in the sixth inning, as YHC strung together five runs, and "walked it off" on an error by a Flying Fleet infielder to collect their second 8-0 win of the afternoon.

Young Harris advanced to 18-14 overall this season and 5-3 in Conference Carolinas games. The Flying Fleet dropped to 4-22 overall and 1-7 in conference play. The Mountain Lions return to action next Wednesday (Apr. 3) at 1 p.m., where they take on Lee University in Young Harris. 



  • Kylie Ferguson had one of her best performances of the season, pitching all five innings for the Mountain Lions, while giving up just two hits, no runs, and recording four strikeouts. 

  • Hannah Carey (2-3) and Gracie Hughes (1-4) each ended game one with two RBIs apiece. 

  • Bailee Brown went 3-4 at the plate, knocking in a run, and scoring three times for the good guys in purple. 

  • YHC recorded eleven hits and gave up just two.  


  • It took four innings for Young Harris to score a run in game two, but once they did, the flood gates opened, and the Mountain Lions unleashed eight runs in under three innings. 

  • Grace Young went all six innings for the Mountain Lions in the circle, allowing just three baserunners total, while striking out five Erskine batters, and allowing zero runs. 

  • Bailee Brown (3-4) and Grace Young (1-4) each ended the second game of the day with two RBIs for Young Harris. 

  • Once again, the Mountain Lions outhit the Flying Fleet, this time nine to two.
