  • Faith Lutheran blasts Green Valley, wins 5A Southern Region softball title

    Getting production from the bottom of the lineup is seen as a bonus for many softball teams.
    The way Faith Lutheran’s No. 9 hitter McKenna Young swung the bat in the Class 5A Southern Region tournament, it was only a surprise when she didn’t get a hit.
    Young finished her tear through the tournament by going 3-for-3 with two doubles and six RBIs. The last of those came on a sacrifice fly that put the final run on the board in a 16-6 run-rule win over Green Valley in five innings that clinched the tournament championship Friday at Faith Lutheran.  See Article
