Lady Bearcats slam Carroll in regional opener

BEDFORD – The calendar said that it was Memorial Day, but Bailey Curry was ready for the Fourth of July.

Curry set off some the fireworks in the form of a walk-off grand slam to send Anderson County to an 11-0 win over Carroll County in the opening round of the Eighth Region Softball Tournament Monday at Trimble County High School.

With Anderson firmly in control with a 7-0 lead, Curry sent a 1-1 pitch from Carroll pitcher Andrea Searcy into orbit. Curry’s blast landed perhaps 50 feet beyond the fence in right-center, 200 feet away.
