South Fulton is standing on a familiar plateau.
South Fulton’s Macy Maxwell has the softball in her glove on a forceout during the Devilettes’ victory on Tuesday.
The Devilettes routed Fulton City 14-0 to earn their 11th 20-win season in Curt Lee’s 12 seasons with the program.
The victory also marks the seventh consecutive campaign in which SF, now 20-9, has reached what is usually regarded as one of the benchmarks of a successful season.
For his career at SF, Lee is now 266-79-1.
Other action on Tuesday had Union City twice a winner against Greenfield. The Lady Tornadoes downed G’field by 11 runs in both contests, winning the opener of the doubleheader by a 11-0 margin and triumphing in the second contest 12-1.
Today’s softball slate has Obion Central at Ripley for a makeup game.
The following is a roundup of Tuesday’s action.

Winning pitcher Sara Reams was equally effective on the mound and at the plate. The Devilette hurler allowed just one hit in her complete game shutout and helped her cause with a home run and three RBI.
Haley McKinney also chased home three tallies during a 2-for-3 afternoon, while Marina Barclay drove in two.
Both Macy Maxwell and Jennifer Allen had one ribbie. Maxwell doubled twice, while Allen was 3-for-4.
