In a season in which the Lugoff-Elgin softball team has not lost back-to-back games, the Lady Demons needed to avoid a second consecutive setback on Monday to keep their 2016 campaign intact. Making their first Upper State tournament appearance since 2002, the Lady Demons fell to host Byrnes, 9-4, in Saturday evening’s opening round of the 4A Upper State tourney. On Monday, James Marlow and company hosted Boiling Springs, which lost to J.L. Mann, 2-1 in eight innings Saturday, in an elimination contest.
