Missy Gators fall before Germantown’s home run barrage

Published 9:51 pm Thursday, February 23, 2023

The one big inning that Vicksburg High put together Thursday wasn’t enough to offset the six that Germantown had.

Addison Lindley hit two of Germantown’s four home runs, and finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs scored, as the Mavericks beat Vicksburg 19-7 in a girls’ softball game.

Germantown (2-2) scored multiple runs in six of the game’s seven innings. Vicksburg (1-3) scored five runs in the bottom of the fifth to cut an 11-run deficit nearly in half, but couldn’t build on it.
