June 5, 2013 —
The Lady Comets would not go quietly in the seventh after Brooke Adkins reached base on an infield single to represent the tying run. But a double play and a strikeout ended the ball game to give Ashland its third win over West this season.
“The girls proved to themselves that they can play with anybody,” Reynolds said. “In the past games, our body language showed they thought they couldn’t win that game. But they were loose and they now know they can play with the top teams.”
The Lady Comets program said goodbye to four seniors, Centers, Brooke Callihan, Makaela Buckler and Courtney Reynolds.
The Kittens would go on to win their fifth straight 16th Region Championship.
