The Gordon Lee Lady Trojans traveled to Ringgold on Tuesday and clinched the NGAC regular season league championship with a 3-2 victory over the Lady Tigers.
Emma Langston struck out eight and allowed just five hits against a potent Ringgold lineup. She also went 3-for-4 at the plate, while Macie Sharp went 2-for-4 with a clutch two-run double in the top of the sixth. Sharp scored Gordon Lee's third run later in the inning, beating a throw home on an RBI-single off the bat off Emma McGraw.
