Rustburg Hosted Fluvanna Monday night for the first round of regional play in softball. The Lady Red Devils are the #1 seed in the region 3C after finishing the regular season undefeated. 

Rustburg continued to stay on course Monday night and this time the bats got hot. Rustburg scored 10 runs off 11 hits with 3 home runs in the game from Katie Donald, Aysia Jiovenetta and Eden Bigham. All 3 plays had a 3-hit night at the plate.  

“We got our bats going and we continued to hit the ball well the whole game,” said Eden Bigham. 

Bigham on the mound faced 18 batters and struck out 17 allowing zero hits and zero walks. Also, that put Eden Bigham over 500 strikeouts in her career with Rustburg High School.
