Athens — The TVCC Lady Cardinals split a doubleheader at home Saturday against Kilgore. They dropped an 8-2 decision in Game 1 and came to take record an 8-2 win in Game 2, fueled by a seven-run third inning.

The split ran their record to 24-17. They are 4-4 in conference.

Saturday’s doubleheader was the college’s participation in the Strikeout Cancer campaign, which benefits a local fund in the fight against cancer. Though the final total has yet to be determined, Athletic Coordinator Lucy Strom said the preliminary total suggests the goal was reached.

Coach Ashley Johnston’s squad has two home doubleheaders this week. Wednesday, the Lady Cardinals are set to take on Paris at 1 and 3 p.m. They will also be at home Friday to play Bossier Parish, also at 1 and 3 p.m.
