The Brighton Lady Cardinals traveled to Booneville, Miss., over the weekend for a tournament and took on some tough competition from that state.
Seeley Layne picked up a pair of pitching wins as the Lady Cardinals won two of three to move to 3-1 on the season.
“We played some really good teams,” said Brighton head coach Robin Jacobs. “We've got a lot of teams like that to play this year. This is just the beginning, so hopefully this will help us.”
Brighton opened up tournament play with a 1-0 win over Lafayette County (Miss.).
Ali Christmas tripled in the first inning and scored on a ground out for the only run of the game.
Layne pitched seven scoreless innings to earn the win.
Senatobia defeated Brighton 6-4 in game two.
Raygan Huffman and Maddy Cox each had a pair of hits for Brighton and Becky Judy took the loss.
Layne picked up another pitching win in game three as Brighton routed Booneville 13-3.
