The Southeast Regional Tournament  got off to a rocky start for the Junior Softball District 1 All-Stars as they dropped their opening game of the to Florida, 16-0, Saturday morning in Fort Myers, Fla.

“We just couldn’t get anything together,” head coach O.J. Gary said after the loss. “We couldn’t get any pitching going and just couldn’t score any runs.”

If the powerful Florida team is an indicator of the rest of the competition, District 1 may have a rough few days ahead of them.

“They were a really stout team,” Gary said. “They were like the US Olympic team … they just overpowered us.”

District 1 will look to bounce back Monday when they face Georgia at 5 p.m.
