Varsity Girls Softball · Softball Gets Dramatic 9 Inning Victory vs. Spfld. Shawnee

Sometimes you need a little luck when having one of those special seasons and that is just what the Lady Elks got at home on Wednesday vs. Springfield Shawnee. The Lady Elks were down 4-3 in the bottom of the 7th inning with 2 outs and the Braves had one of our runners in a pickle between 3rd and home plate and the Braves did not execute the rundown correctly and we were able score just under the tag to send the game into extra innings. In the bottom of the 9th inning Raquel Emery was able to score Taylor White for the 5-4 win. Also, Caroline Ferrazza hit her first career home run earlier in the game. The win raises the varsity to 15-2 overall. The varsity is scheduled to play at Lakota West Thursday at 5:00 pm.
