ZLL 12U (Majors) softball team has advanced to the state Little League tournament after claiming the District 8 and Section 5 tournament championships. The team will now play in the 12U State Softball Championship in Hessville, IN beginning July 16th.
The Eagles won their Sectional games with outstanding defensive and dominant pitching. Kate Cantrell, Sophie Theobold, Sterling McKenzie, Lauren Baker, Sofia Southard, Lylah Sands, and Elise Gall all made tremendous plays in the field. Sydney Webber lead the offense going 5 for 5 (1.000) with 5 runs scored. Helping her were Lauren Baker who batted .600, Sophie Theobald, Annika Stewart and Kate Cantrell each batted .400 for the tournament. Annika Stewart pitched a complete game for the first win 4-2. Sophie Theobald and Annika combined for a 1 hit 8-0 shutout victory to claim Sectionals. Jenny Pitts and Anna Gobeyn controlled the game from the catcher position by not allowing base runners to advance. During the District tournament, Ainsley Serbin pitched in 3 of the games and Nicole Gruesser had 1.000 OBP
