With batters hitting just .129 against her this season, her ERA is the second best in the nation at 0.65. This is Smith’s second NFCA All-American accolade as she was named to the First Team last year as well. Earlier Wednesday, Smith was named the D2CCA Ron Lenz Pitcher of the Year and to the D2CCA First Team.

The pitching duo and the rest of the No. 1 Nighthawks will open the tournament tomorrow morning at 11 a.m.

SALEM BOUND! No. 1 Nighthawks Come From Behind to Win Super Regional

University of North Georgia
5/18/2018 | Softball | Box Score
DAHLONEGA – For the first time since 2015, the No. 1 University of North Georgia softball team is headed to the NCAA Division II Softball Championship after coming back to eliminate Young Harris, 2-1, in the Southeast Super Regional Fridayafternoon at Haines & Carolyn Hill Stadium.

The Mountain Lions struck first in the fourth, using three singles to scratch the game’s first run across the plate. North Georgia got runners in scoring position in three innings without plating a run prior to finally scoring in the sixth.

With a 2-2 count to lead off the sixth, Kaylyn Anthony blasted a solo shot that never got higher than seven feet off the ground, just clearing the fence to tie the game, 1-1. North Georgia took the lead for good as Hobby Gregory came sliding into home on a double steal to give UNG the margin needed to advance in the tournament. Young Harris got a runner to third in the final frame, but a groundout to senior Brittany Gilliam clinched the win, allowing the celebration to begin.

NOTES
– Kylee Smith earned her 35th win of the year, surrendering just one run off five hits and three walks while punching out eight.

– The one-run lead for YHC was the first time that North Georgia had trailed in a game since the regular season finale against Flagler when UNG trailed, 1-0, for a half inning before the Nighthawks scored four in the next half inning.

– Shelby Hammontree led UNG at the plate, going 1-for-2 with a walk.

– With the win, North Georgia officially wins the Battle of Blood Mountain for the fifth straight year, 6.0-4.0.
