In the District Championship match up, Mikayla Fowler scored on a throwing error to give the Lady Falcons a 2-1 victory in eleven innings. Coach Carrie Reynell’s sophomore pitcher Kelly Hysong has struck out over 200 batters this season. As a freshman, she registered a 7-4 mark with 96 punch outs in 65 innings. Number 7 is the probable starter for this evening’s game.
