ZLL’s 10U (Minors) softball team will be the third ZLL program to advance to the State Little League tournament after claiming the District 8 and Section 5 championships. The team will now play in the 10U Softball Championship in Clarksville, IN beginning July 18.
The Eagles won their Sectional games 23-3 and 11-0 behind dominating pitching performances from Sophie Theobald and Annika Stewart in both games. Sophie allowed only 3 runs in 6 innings combining with Annika (0 runs, 2 innings) to shut down the Lebanon Tigers. The Eagles used a potent offense and team speed to sweep through District and Sectionals. The Eagles have 10 girls batting .500 or above during District and Sectional games. Leading the team were Annika Stewart .833 (10 for 12), Sydney Webber .750 (3 for 4), Jenny Pitts .722 (13 of 18), Anna Gobeyn .636 (7 of 11) and Allison Jones .571 (4 of 7). Sofia Southard, Paige Zvokel, Lexi Puckett, Sophie Theobald, and Lylah Sands all batted .500.
