The second time was the charm.


The Callaway Classic was supposed to be played earlier this season, but it had to be postponed because of rain.


The event was re-scheduled for this past weekend, and this time it went off flawlessly.


Ten teams, including Callaway, LaGrange and Troup, participated in the two-day event that was held at Shuford Fields.


Most of the teams played five games, and the local teams were well-represented.


Troup and LaGrange each went 4-1, and Callaway finished with a 2-3 record.


Troup enjoyed a breakout offensive performance during the two days.


The Lady Tigers scored 69 runs in five games, and even in the game they lost they scored eight runs.


On Friday, Troup lost its opener to Upson-Lee 10-8, but it bounced back for a 20-12 win over Manchester in a game that went to extra innings.


Troup was back at it on Saturday, and it beat Villa Rica 13-2, Hardaway 13-3, and Landmark Christian 13-1.


LaGrange, meanwhile, did it with offense and pitching.


Emily Anderson pitched in four of the five games, and she was sharp in each of them.


Offensively, LaGrange scored at least eight run in four of its games.


On Friday, LaGrange thumped Hardaway 16-1 before losing its only game, 3-1 to Central-Carroll.


On Saturday, LaGrange beat Callaway 10-0, Landmark Christian 9-1 and Upson-Lee 8-0.


Callaway lost to Landmark Christian 5-4 in its first game on Friday, and it bounced back to beat Manchester 19-6.


On Saturday, Callaway lost to LaGrange 10-0, beat Villa Rica 8-7 and lost to Shaw 4-2.
