COVINGTON - The Georgia Perimeter Lady Jaguars christened their brand new softball facility on their new Newton campus over the weekend, going undefeated in four straight games.

Overall, the Lady Jags (27-16, 14-4 conference) amassed 29 runs on 20 hits, while giving up just one run on six hits.

On Friday, the Lady Jags took a doubleheader by shutting out Andrews College 8-0, 8-0 with their hard throwing ace pitcher, Kimberly Hobbs, taking the mound in the first game.

Georgia Perimeter didn't miss a beat in the second game, with Krystin Williams going to the hill.

Williams served up a masterful display of off-speed pitching brilliance to keep Andrews baffled at the plate.

The Lady Jags continued their diamond assault on Saturday by taking both games in a doubleheader against Young Harris.

Hobbs pitched a 4-0 shutout in the first game, followed by Williams who tossed a four-hitter in the second game to give Georgia Perimeter a 9-1 six inning victory.

"We started out slow this year," said Georgia Perimeter coach Ed Schutte, "but we had some good wins in some tournaments. (Against) some of the bigger teams we played, our defense wasn't as solid, and we would lose by one or two runs. You've got to beat those big teams in the big tournaments."

Georgia Perimeter's defense was relentless in both games Saturday. Led by former Eastside High standouts Kristie Rice and Heather Hodge, they manned the infield along with former Newton High's Nichole Stanford.

But the defense was just as good as their offense, as their hitting got a spark by Hodge, Stanford, Alisa Malte, Ashley Hill and Williams.

Georgia Perimeter is ranked No.22 in the country and sits atop conference play. In the last nine games, the Lady Jags have run-ruled their opponents in six of those meetings.
