Strom Thurmond opened their Region V-AAA season with a 6-1 victory over the Edisto Cougars Tuesday night. They rode masterful pitching and timely hitting to the win.
Madelyn Wise was credited with the victory for the Rebels. She went seven innings, allowing only one hit, striking out 12 and walking zero. Wise added a two-run homerun in the third inning and accounted for four RBI on the night.
Wise, Ella Stone, Emilee McAllister, and Autumn Easler each managed hits to lead the way offensively for Strom Thurmond.
The Rebels play tonight at Saluda in a non-region game and return home Friday for a region matchup against the Swansea Tigers.
