The NFCA Junior College Leadoff Classic provided a lot of strong competition along with a lot of games. Five to be exact as the Gordon State College softball team started the event in Columbus this past weekend. The most successful day was the first as GSC posted a 7 - 5 win over Spartanburg Methodist (SC) along with a 1 - 0 victory against Labette (KS). However, Saturday was a different story as Gordon State fell to Odessa (TX) and Seminole State (FL). On the final day of the Leadoff Classic, it was conference foe Georgia Perimeter College that would eliminate the Highlanders 2 - 0. The contest would not be decided until the 7th inning as sophomore Abby Hulsey hit a two-run homer over the left field fence for the Jaguars and the walk-off win.

The hours clicked by as GSC and Middle Georgia State College played their doubleheader on Sunday afternoon.

In Game One, the Knights would get the spark they needed as Julie Bradley hit a two-run homerun in the 11th inning to seal a 12 - 11 victory for the visiting team. The Highlanders did score one run in the bottom of the frame but would leave a runner stranded on second base to close out the game. It was a solid day at the plate for GSC's Brittany Sinkfield and Hailey Burnham. Sinkfield went 3 - 4 with two doubles while Burnham also picked up three hits along with two RBI's.
