Last year, the Maids finished third in region 1-AAA and played Harlem High School in round one of the AAA playoffs. The Syrupmaids are looking to replace a couple of players from last year’s team, but look forward to continuing the success they had over the summer. Speed on the base paths should be a great weapon for the Maids this year. “We had a good experience this summer and played a lot of games in June. Hopefully, some of the girls will continue to step up and we can be competitive in region 1-AAA,” said Hogan.
Cairo will get plenty of playing time this weekend in Bainbridge to get the season started. The Syrupmaids play Friday at 5 p.m. and then again at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The Maids open the season on the road with games at Miller County on Aug. 15, Crisp County Aug. 18 and Bainbridge Aug. 23. The Syrupmaids will open their home schedule on Aug. 24 against Seminole County at 6 p.m.
