Calvin Lady Cougars take the Class C State Championship title for the first time since 2008.
The Lady Cougars looked confident as they took the field for their 10-minute pre-game warm-up. The bleachers were filled with well over a hundred fans ready to cheer the ladies to victory.
Twelve Lady Cougars crossed home plate to defeat the Georgetown Lady Bulldogs 12-4 claiming the state championship title. The Lady Cougars collected 12 base hits combined with the biggest coming from senior Hannah Barber. She hit a three-run bomb in the second inning earning her the most outstanding player title.
Eighth-grade pitcher Haley Martin exhibited great stamina on the mound. Instead of losing speed late in the game, she seemed to accelerate in the 6th and 7th innings. Haley held the Lady Bulldogs to only 5 hits over 7 innings. Haley had 1 strikeout and 2 walks in the win. She did an outstanding job with the help of a great defense behind her. The Lady Bulldog’s only had 7 baserunners in the 7 inning ball game.
The Lady Cougars are beyond excited to bring the title back to Calvin after 13 years. They are patiently waiting on ring sizing day.
The Lady Cougars would like to thank the community and all their fans for the amazing support shown to them this past week.
