UPDATE 4/8/23: Hear explanation of the call on McCray & Son Broadcasting:

The Lady Bears were back on the diamond on Thursday afternoon taking on the Fort Leboeuf Bison in another region game. Kaegann Gregor would hit a single driving in two runs, while Lucy Higley was two for three with an RBI. A controversial call in the bottom of the seventh ended up costing the Lady Bears the game, with a runner on second and one out, Cathryn Reynolds would hit a single. Fort Leboeuf would challenge the call and after a lengthy conference, the call would be overturned. The Bears could not overcome, giving the win to Fort Leboeuf 5-4. With the loss, the Lady Bears fall to 3-2 (1-2) on the season while the Bison improve to 4-0 (2-0).
