Lady Raiders softball team wins conference title
The Raiders varsity softball team celebrates the Conference Tourney championship.
The number one seed Lady Raiders played the Lady Trojans in the Conference finals Friday, May 30 at Dream Fields. The Lady Raiders jumped out to an early lead by scoring three runs in the first inning. Their pitching and defense controlled the game until the sixth; they didn’t allow a runner past second base. They gave up three runs in the top of the sixth, and were tied when they came to bat. Courtney Berhalter started a two out rally in the bottom of the sixth with a shot to right field. Lexi Hanks followed up with an infield single. Then Megan Elbourn doubled to clear the bases, and put her team back in the lead. Senior pitcher Hallie Berger refocused and shut down the Trojans in the seven for a 5-3 victory.
