Girls Junior Varsity Softball, Girls Varsity Softball · Lady Knights Win Sectional!

The Lady Knights won the school’s first sectional title with a dramatic come-back win over Knightstown 5-4! The Lady Knights never gave up after being down 3-0 after the first inning. Sierra Gilmore lead the charge with a game tying “no doubt” 3 run homer in the fifth inning along with many outstanding plays on defense. It was a complete team effort with Lena Smith and Carli Williams driving in runs. Leah Hoskins, Katlyn Williams each scored a run with Mikayla Hornung scoring twice. Northeastern received the “royal treatment” with a procession of over 15 cars following the buses from Union County. They were met just north of Richmond by 5 emergency vehicles that then escorted them thru Fountain City and back to the school. The players celebrated with pizza along with comments from the Seniors on the special night. Northeastern (21-5) travel to Eastern Hancock to play in the regionals Tuesday at 6:00.
