CHINA GROVE — Carson’s softball team beat Piedmont 6-1 on Thursday, a strong win for the Cougars against one of the traditional powers in 3A.

She also came through with the key two-out hit in Carson’s four-run third inning. Addison’s double cleared the bases, and Makayla Johnson’s RBI single got another run home.
