“We’re finally getting to where we can hit that faster ball,” PCA coach Liz Gullett said.

Bryan pitched three shutout innnings before the Monroe, La., team managed its run in the fourth.

“This was probably our best game,” Gullett said, adding that she switched some people to different positions. “The defense was a lot better.”

The Lady Eagles will be at Benton Academy for a doubleheader today at 4. They will host Manchester in a makeup game at Culkin Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
