HS SB: Marchant goes deep twice as Seahawks win slugfest in finale

Reagan Marchant launched two home runs, Leah Jackson put together a stellar four-RBI day at the plate, and Hilton Head High softball closed its season Tuesday with a 16-11 road victory over Battery Creek. 

The Seahawks led 6-5 after two innings in the slugfest and blew it open in the third with a seven-run frame highlighted by a Jackson single and Lynda Young double. The Dolphins got one back in the fourth with a clutch two-out line-drive double by Brooke Crosby, but Hilton Head restored the eight-run lead on a Zoey Jackson bases-loaded walk in the sixth.
