Madison softball sweeps George Mason to win Bull Run District title

With a couple of flicks of the bat, Hannah Johnson gave Madison County’s softball team all the offense it needed in Monday night’s nightcap.


In a 22-2 win over George Mason, Johnson went 3-for-3 with eight RBI including a grand slam and a three-run home run. The victory over the Mustangs, coupled with an 18-0 win in the first half of the doubleheader Monday, secured a sixth-straight Bull Run District championship for the Mountaineers, who currently sit at 14-0 on the season.


Logyn Estes and Bailey Smith combined for a five-inning win, striking out nine together with Smith allowing a pair of runs in her three innings. Estes helped her own cause with three RBI on a 2-for-3 night at the plate that included a double. Emilee Russell and Cassie Smith each also knocked in two runs. Ten different Mountaineers knocked in runs as Madison rang up 17 hits on the night in just five innings.


In the first game of the day against the Mustangs, Emily Seale stepped into the circle and threw a shutout one-hitter to win 18-0. Seale struck out eight and allowed just the single hit and one walk in a dominant performance. Offensively, Sophie Adams hit a grand slam to lead the way while Estes went 4-for-5 with four RBI and a home run of her own. Like in the second game of the day, 10 Madison batters knocked in runs, including Seale who helped herself with a 3-for-4 day with two RBI.
