Lady Hounds second in region

Jones County's bid for its first softball region title fell short when the Lady Hounds were swept in a doubleheader by Locust Grove on Thursday.

The Lady Hounds needed to win just one of the two games to claim the region crown, but they could not make it.

One bad inning proved costly in the first game, with the host Lady Wildcats taking control with six runs in the sixth inning to win 8-2.

The second game went back and forth throughout, with Locust Grove finally winning 10-9 in nine innings.

Jones County will still host in the opening round of the state playoffs. The Lady Hounds will play McIntosh in a best of three series, with two games on Wednesday and the third on Thursday if needed. Times will be announced later.
