In a battle of wills and skills Janelle Hynes finally found a pitch from Savannah Smeaton she could turn on and the result gave the Collins High School softball team a dramatic 9-8 win over Shelby County in the opening round of the 30th District tourney Monday.
Hynes lined an inside pitch to left field to score two runs for a walk-off single allowing the Titans to advance to the district finals.
“Inside, inside, everything was inside,” Hynes said. “I finally got one I could turn on. She (Smeaton) made it hard, really hard.”
