The DeKalb County High School Tigerette fast-pitch softball team edged district foe, Smith County, 3-2, in the regular season finale Wednesday afternoon in Smithville.
The Tigerettes struck first with a run in the bottom of the first inning, but left runners stranded on all three bases as the inning ended. DeKalb tacked on another run in the bottom of the second inning, but would not score again until the bottom of the fifth, when they added their third and final run.
Smith County provided several scores, although the visitors never led. The Lady Owls scored their first run in the top of the fifth inning to make it a 2-1 game. After DeKalb scored in the bottom of the inning, Smith County loaded up the bases in the sixth, but the Tigerettes escaped with only a single run allowed.
