Carthage snaps the Mustangs’ 7-game winning streak.

“She had the big RBI in the 2nd inning that gave us the 1-0 lead, and there at the end she had a great at-bat,” says head coach Stephanie Ray of Jones, “She was fouling balls off and fouling balls off. With an 0-2 pitch she put one over the left fielder’s head. I just knew if we could get that runner to third, we had a chance. We put the bat in the senior’s hand there and she just took it and she owned it there.”
