Spicer would allow other baserunners on the day, but none would ever come back to bite her. Jase Jackson hit a 2 RBI double in the bottom of the third to give Creek Wood the lead, and Lillie Boydston would drive in Bailey Griffith in the fourth while Spicer would ground out in the fifth as Analeigh Coursey putRead More →

The Creek Wood Lady Red Hawks were locked in against non-district foe Henry County on Wednesday night.

Spicer had a perfect game through three innings, before a harmlessRead More →
