ELLAVILLE – It was the long ball that made the difference in the Schley County Wildcats’ 5-4 victory over Bleckley County Wednesday night, August 23, at Wildcat Park. Destiny LeCroy belted a two-run homer in the first to give SCHS a 2-0 lead and Reece Bell gave the Wildcats the lead for good when she homered in the bottom of the fourth.
