Brentwood Academy softball falls to Baylor 

An early run spree from perennial contender Baylor sunk Brentwood Academy Tuesday in the first round of the D-II softball state tournament.

Head coach Greg Brown said he still feels that his Lady Eagles have a great chance to rebound.

“They’ve been working for it all year; they’re ready,” he said of the quick turnaround. “We worked to get here, and they knew that they were coming to play hopefully more than two games.”
