Girls Varsity Softball · Stars advance in dramatic fashion

The Western Boone Stars opened up Sectional 38 play last night with an exciting extra inning win against Seeger. The Stars jumped out to an 4 run lead with a 5 hit 3rd inning that included singles by Heather Clark and Molly Crawford, doubles by Paige Armstrong and Mya Fisher, and a triple by Hannah Redlin. The Patriots scored 5 more in the 5th and 6th inning to tie things up as the Stars were held scoreless.  After a zero run 7th the Patriots put 2 more runs on the board in the top half of the 8th inning to take an 8-6 lead. With their back against the wall, the Stars battled as Victoria Grimes hit a 1 out single to start things off. From there, the Stars put their base running skills on display legging out multiple close plays and ultimately scoring 3 runs to advance into the Semi-Finals with a 9-8 win.

The Stars are back at it tonight as they look to avenge regular season losses to the Southmont Mounties with a 5:30 start.
