With playoffs on the line, every softball game the county plays brings it closer and closer to playoff baseball and added stress and importance of every game. The Adairsville softball team dropped to 8-10 on the season and 5-7 in region play with an 8-0 loss to Sonoraville. The Excel softball team was handed an 8-0 defeat by defending state champions, Gordon Lee. Excel dropped to 8-11 on the season and 2-7 in region play. The Lady Canes were the third county team to drop a softball game yesterday, as they fell 4-3 to Chapel Hill. Cartersville is now 12-10 on the season, but just 4-6 in region play.
