“That's my niece,” Rams coach Paul Watts said. “She always told me how she wanted to hit a home run. All I was thinking (when she was rounding the bases) was that she's going to get an inside-the-park home run on her final at-bat of the state tournament.
LEEDEY TRIMS RED OAK
Leedey coach Terry Maxwell won his third slowpitch title when the Bison beat Red Oak 8-6 in the Class A state finals.
Leedey spent the first two innings hitting the ball deep, but it started putting balls down in the infield. Three straight singles in the fourth inning and five straight in the fifth inning allowed the Bison to score three and four runs, respectively.
“They've been off to a slow start all season,” Maxwell said.
But he was pleased with his team's adjustments.
Leedey lost to Red Oak during the regular-season, 16-4.
“That's just slowpitch softball,” Maxwell said. “Sometimes you hit the run rule and sometimes you win.”
