Shamrock softball tops Fowler to win District Championship




The St. Patrick’s Varsity Softball team hosted Districts on Friday afternoon. Fulton, Fowler, Carson City- Crystal and St. Patrick’s spent the afternoon battling out 3 games where the Shamrocks came out as District Champions.

 

Game 1: Fulton 1 vs Fowler 13

Fowler won the game

 

Game 2: CC-C 0 vs SP 11

St. Patrick’s won the game 11-0 and Tori Sandborn pitched the Shamrocks a PERFECT GAME catapulting the Shamrocks forward to the District finals. She has 7 strikeouts and pitched 68 pitches for a complete game. Behind Tori, the Shamrocks played errorless in the field and fought at the plate for an early lead. Rylee Scheurer went 4/4 with 3 runs and 1 RBI. Gracelyn Rockey went 4/4 with 2 runs, 2 DBLs, and 4 RBIs. Addie Scheurer went 3/4 with 3 runs, a DBL, a TRPL, and 2 RBIs. Tori Sandborn went 1/2 with 3 RBIs.

 

Game 3: District Championship

Fowler 8 vs. SP 9

In true CMAC fashion, this matchup left nothing but an electric field from both the Eagles and the Shamrocks. Tori Sandborn battled on the mound and ended the 7 innings game with 5 strikeouts.

At the plate, Gracelyn Rockey went 3/4 with 3 runs, 1 DBL, and 1 RBI. Addie Scheurer went 2/3 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs. Megan Myers went 1/2 with an RBI. Hannah Weller and Laynie Meredith added an RBI, Naomi Hass added 2 RBIs, and Rylee Scheurer had a triple.

 

St. Patrick’s took the lead early but Fowler chipped away until they took the lead in the fifth inning. The Shamrocks answered back with 3 runs to tie the game. Neither team scored in the 6th inning and when it came to the bottom of the seventh inning Tori Sandborn walked, stole second and was hit to third by Hannah Weller. On the last out of the game Megan Myers hit a fly ball to the infield where an error in fielding occurred allowing Tori Sandborn to score in an absolutely erupting fashion.

 

Coaching Staff Comments:

Our whole mentality this year is to keep growing each game, each practice, each strategy talk and to peak at the end of the season. The ladies embraced this strategy and did everything we asked them. From strategic base running, selective pitches to a team we played twice in the regular season, and even Hannah’s pick off of their lead off batter was something that was practiced, talked about and executed. We feel that each plate appearance was a quality at bat, and that defensively we made almost every play that we should have… we are thrilled for the girls, the families, and the program itself. Megan’s mentality at the end of the game was very symbolic of our approach- put the ball in play and make the defense show up. Megan did what we asked and we were able to take advantage of her diligence at the plate. The Shamrocks advance to Regionals next weekend to face Alcona at Beal City.
