Lady Wolverines take top spot in district

The Lady Wolverines rolled through district play with a 5-1 mark and
now hope to keep up that momentum as they head into the playoffs next
week.

“We are glad to get the first-round bye,” said East Webster head fast-
pitch softball coach Lee Berryhill. “We have been kind of up and down
at times, but we have been scrapping out some games here and there
that has kept us at the top of the division.”

East Webster wrapped up league play with a 12-5 win over Eupora on
Monday that puts the Lady Wolverines at 16-5 overall.

Berryhill said the key to his team is the production that the top of
the batting order has been producing.

That certainly was the case on Monday night.

Mamie Hollenhead, Bailey Springfield and Autumn Frost have been
pounding the ball as of late.

After falling behind 2-0 in the top of the first, Hollenhead and
Springfield got back hits to open the bottom of the inning before
Frost cranked out a homer to put the winners up 3-2. The Lady
Wolverines added another run in the inning to take the momentum away
from Eupora in the game.

“We responded right there and it just carried over for the rest of
the game,” Berryhill said. “We scored every inning the rest of the way.”

Hamilton wound up finishing second in the district, with Eupora
taking third.
