Avery softball caps busy week with Senior Day

Avery 14, Hendersonville 5
The Avery Lady Vikings softball team was busy with four conference games as the regular season winds down.
The Lady Vikings picked up a key conference victory against the Hendersonville Lady Bearcats on Wednesday, May 1, earning a nine-run victory against a fellow 1A opponent, helping the club's chances of securing a playoff spot.
The teams played evenly, with Avery holding a narrow 6-5 lead going to the bottom of the sixth inning. At that point, the Lady Vikings exploded for eight runs until Avery broke the game open, then held the Lady Bearcats scoreless in the seventh inning to earn the win.
