RIDGELAND – The East Webster softball team entered Saturday on a mission.
With a seventh inning come-from-behind victory in game one, the Lady Wolverines came out on day two ready to prove they were worthy of wearing the Class 2A Fast Pitch State Championship crown for a second year in a row.
The desire paid off.
Jumping out to an early 3-0 lead, East Webster (30-2) carried its determination all the way to the title with a 12-4 win over Taylorsville Tartars.
“This win was about the girls and East Webster High School,” Lady Wolverines coach Lee Berryhill said. “This was not about the coaches or about me. It was about this community we have. They have supported us all year. They are out here now and this is what it is all about.”
Bailie Springfield was first up in the batter’s box and the sophomore showed what she was made of with a triple to left field. After a walk of Autumn Frost. Jennah Pate stepped up to bring Springfield home with a RBI ground out to third.
East Webster returned to scoring in the top of the second as Krista Ellis was the first to reach after being hit by pitch. Kandler Flora joined her on base and ended up on second while Ellis stood on third.
Jessica Davis brought both ladies home with a long two RBI single to right field, which gave the Lady Wolverines a three run advantage.
“Everything was just clicking for me,” Davis said. “We had the mindset (Saturday) of playing to win and not playing to not lose. We were not afraid to step up.”
