The varsity softball team saw their stellar 2016 season come to an end in the District Finals at Northmont High School last Monday when they lost a heart breaker to Lakota West, 3-2. The Elks jumped out to an early, 1-0 lead, only to see Lakota West punch across two runs in the bottom of the 4th to take a 2-1 lead. The Elks rallied in the top of the sixth to tie the game at 2 and had a runner on second base with one out, but could not get her home. The Firebirds then got a big hit down the left field line to score the winning run in walk-off fashion in the bottom of the seventh inning.
The Elks finish the year at 19-6 overall and co-champs of the always tough GWOC Central.
Best of luck to this year’s seniors as you enter an exciting new chapter in your lives. Thank you for all of your hard work and contributions to the softball program these past four years.
