Thursday is Ingersoll's birthday.

The Lady Blues, an 18U team softball travel team made up of area players, finished 10th out of 88 teams in the Georgia Fire Dynamites Tournament in Columbia last week. Butler’s Chelsea Ingersoll hit over .400 of the tournament playing catcher and third base. In the final day of competition the team played back to back games from 8:30 am to 10:30 pm.
