OKEECHOBEE- Yearling Middle School defeated Osceola Middle School in softball on Feb. 23, 6-3.
OMS jumped out to an early 2-1 lead in the second inning, but Yearling never let their confidence dip. In the bottom of the second Yearling's Jayda Rochelle hit an inside-the-park homerun that also brought in Savannah McCoy to give YMS the 3-2 lead.
"Our motto is 'You've got what it takes, so be willing to give everything you got'," said YMS coach Kacy Hackett. "So that's what we do. We practice super hard and when we come out on the field we give everything we got."
Yearling is 3-1 so far this year and will take the field again on March 2 when they host Imagine Charter. YMS and OMS will face off again in one month on March 25 in a rematch at Okeechobee High School.
