The Golden Flashes beat Tuslaw, 4-0 Saturday, advancing to the State Tournament for the 2nd time in 3 years.

MASSILLON, Ohio (WKBN) – Just hours after Champion’s baseball team won a Regional Title, the Champion softball team followed suit with a 4-0 win over Tuslaw Saturday in a Division III Regional Final.

The Golden Flashes got on the board in the second inning, as Megan Turner and McKenzie Zigmont drove in the game’s first two runs. Zigmont followed that up in the fourth with a two-run double to make it a 4-0 game.

The senior Zigmont capped things off from the circle, finishing with five K’s and allowing just three hits on the day. Zigmont also led the way with three RBI’s from the plate.

Champion improves to 30-2 on the season and is back in the State Semifinals for the second time in three years. The team won the Division III State Championship back in 2015.

The second-ranked Golden Flashes will play third-ranked Springfield Northwestern (26-2) Friday at 12:30 p.m. at Akron Firestone Stadium.
