Maddie Veal got the region win against McEachern with a complete game shutout.


The Newnan Lady Cougars remained undefeated in Region 2-7A play after defeating McEachern 6-0 on the road Thursday night.

Newnan was led by their top pitcher, Maddie Veal. She pitched a shutout with 11 strikeouts.

Caroline Strickland led the Lady Cougar attack with three hits, and Carly Hector added two more, including a double.

On Wednesday night, Newnan hosted Whitewater on the Lady Cougars senior night. Their lone senior, Jaisha Davison, was honored pregame as Newnan fell to the Lady Wildcats in non-region play.

Newnan will host East Coweta on Monday to play for the regular-season region championship.
