AID — The Rock Hill Redwomen used their weekend to play plenty of softball and try to get better.

After playing three games in the annual Lady Vikings “Valley of Thunder,” Redwomen coach Sam Gue said mission accomplished.

“It was a good to play some good teams. It can only make us better,” said Gue. “It was a great weekend. (Symmes Valley coach Jeff Estep) and Symmes Valley put on a great tournament.”

Rock Hill lost 7-2 to Hilliard Darby in Saturday’s first game.
