The varsity softball team traveled to Fairmont High School to take on the Miamisburg Vikings Monday night in the Division 1, Dayton 2 Sectional Finals. The Elks scored first in the bottom of the second to take an early 1-0 lead and then added another run in the bottom of the third to go up, 2-0. The Vikings got their lone run home in the top of the fourth to trim the deficit to 2-1, but senior pitcher Mollie Paulick slammed the door from there to give the Lady Elks their first Sectional title since 2004.
Sophomore Raquel Emery went 2-3 with two doubles while junior Taylor White added a triple. Junior Lizzy Leach was 1-2 with an RBI while Mollie Paulick registered 14 strikeouts from the circle.
Now 18-5 on the year, the girls now head to the District Finals where they will face Lakota West on Saturday at Northmont High School at a time to be announced.
