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. 

In other area games:

• The Tipton-Rosemark Academy baseball team defeated Bolton last Thursday 3-2, with Nathan Whitley picking up the pitching win. 

On Friday the Rebels, behind a strong pitching performance from Conner Sanders and seven hits, defeated Forrest 8-4. 

The Rebels lost to Houston 5-2 and Briarcrest 7-2 on Saturday before rebounding with a 5-3 win over South Side on Tuesday. Logan Stewart picked up his first win of the season. 

• Munford's baseball team fell to Collierville 10-2 on Tuesday.
