One more out and maybe Lambert Lady Longhorns softball would have been in Columbus. Ahead 2-1 in the seventh inning of Game 1 of the Class AAAAAA second round against Collins Hill, the Lady Longhorns had one out left to get to put them a game away from being one of the final eight teams to play in the GHSA Softball State Championships. Instead, Collins Hill hit a two-run home run to win 3-2, a deflating loss that led to a 13-2 mercy-rule loss in Game 2 in which Lambert committed eight errors.
