DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia softball team hosted a Lumpkin County YMCA Heroes League game on Wednesday evening at the Hill, welcoming in the Tigers and the Heroes for a family fun night.

Players from the Saints softball team were on hand to help out and give support for the little leaguers. Katie Block, Kaitlyn Seabolt, Katie Garrett, Karlie Gillam, Victoria St. Clair, Tiffanie Burns and Rochelle Shuman all to action to give help to the players and coaches.

The Heroes team is made up of special individuals from ages 5-57 that participate in the YMCA programs throughout the summer.

The Heroes came out on top by a score of 29-21 over the Tigers, but the score was no indication of the fun the kids had on the field.
