  • 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

  • Faith Lutheran rallies for win, reaches softball title round

    McKenna Young singled home the go-ahead run to cap a two-run rally in the sixth inning, and host Faith Lutheran edged Centennial 3-2 on Wednesday in the Class 5A Southern Region softball tournament.
    Young was 2-for-3, and her winning hit came after Jill Molnar’s RBI doubled tied the game. Ava Walker allowed two runs, one earned, on six hits and struck out eight in a complete-game win.
    The win puts the Crusaders into the championship round and guarantees a spot in next week’s state tournament. Centennial will be back in action at 4:30 p.m. Thursday at home, facing the winner of an elimination game between Arbor View and Green Valley that will be played at 2 at Centennial.
