The Boyd Lady Yellowjackets refused to accept that fate. The first four batters in the top of the seventh reached base before freshman Sydney Langley celebrated her birthday with the game-winning single to left in the Lady Yellowjackets’ improbable 10-9 victory to sweep Breckenridge in the 3A Region I bi-district series at Weatherford College.
