It’s tough to beat a team 3 times in one season but that’s just what the girls did. The Lady P’s won in thrilling fashion over Buckeye Trail who didn’t go down without putting up a fight to claim the Sectional Championship.

Down 3-1 in the bottom of 6th with 2 outs and the girls came up with big key hits. Meghan Petitte, Sarah Billman and Emma Gee all hit singles to score a run and Johnson followed with a 3 run HR to take a 5-3 lead and the girls held on for a 5-4 win.

Billman ended the day with 3 hits, Johnson with 2 along with Troyer, Petitte, Gee and Mya Gee each collecting a hit.

Jocelyn Troyer got the start in the circle and pitched all 7 innings for the win. Her 8th on the year.

Johnsons HR gives her 13 on the year and 21 in her career which is also a new school record and extended her hitting streak to 25 games. The HR also gave the team 31 on the season. Troyers double added to her school record giving her 15 on the year. Congratulations Ladies!

District Semi-Final game vs Tusky Valley will be on Monday, May 13th at 5pm. Site to be determined.

Go Pirates!
