Softball Heads to State

The Lady Kings season was dead until they had a big inning against Juneau-Douglas. Nineteen big runs put the team over the Bears. That wasn’t even the highlight of the day. The Lady kings went all seven with the Sitka Wolves and lost, but a challenge on a home run call overturned the loss and the Lady Kings won with a 7-6 score. With that win, the Lady Kings qualified for state and leave today for Fairbanks. Junior Payton Simmons said the win electrified the team after being down the night before.
“The team was disappointed because of the loss,” said Simmons. “After hearing the challenge was granted we had a whole new mindset for the game ahead. Knowing we had another shot at going to state the moral of our team was amazing, the energy changed and we kept our momentum up which won us the game.”
The Lady Kings will compete in the state finals starting Thursday playing Delta Junction.
