Lady Hounds fall in Elite Eight

The Lady Hounds’ trip to the state Elite Eight didn’t turn out the way they wanted, and the disappointment began even before they arrived in Columbus.

Jones County lost its first two games in the double elimination tournament, falling to Walnut Grove 3-1 on Thursday afternoon and to Carrollton 8-3 on Friday, to finish the season with a 28-10 record.

But the team suffered its first loss the night before the tournament began when senior catcher Kaylin Curry went to the hospital with stomach pains. It was found she had appendicitis, so she had to have an appendectomy while her teammates were on their way to Columbus Thursday morning.
