In their first ever appearance in the state softball
tournament....Cochrane-Fountain City is playing in
the championship game.
The newcomers facing....
...an Oakfield team going for their fourth state title
over the past six years.
Oakfield puts the first run on the board in the second
inning on this Dana Swanson r-b-i triple.
They build up a four-zero lead.
C-F-C trying to chip away at it...Sierra Rodgers sac
fly scores Rylee Gabel.
The Pirates actually out-hit the Oaks 12-to-11 in
C-F-C coming so close to getting that play to get
them back in the game whether it was that Kayla Kamrowski
ball that just went foul.
They strand two runners
on base in the fourth,,,fifth....and
C-F-C loses 7-3.
Pirates in their first ever state softball appearance
are bringing home the runner-up trophy.
We had a fantastic year.
I'm not sad about anything.
We hit the heck out of the ball, we had more hits
in this game than we had our entire tournament and
all the games that we played.
We just hit the heck out of the ball but they just
didn't fall where we needed to at times when we really
needed a big hit.
But that doesn't take away anything from the season
It was amazing.
It was the best season by far I ever had through my
high school career.
It's just a great opportunity to be on a team with
all these players because they just make your whole
day, you could have the worst day and it's all better
when you get out on that field.
It's a big achievement, it's school history, it's
never happened before so that feels good we can put
something in that trophy case now.
