Lady ’Stangs enter state championship tournament May 16
LAS VEGAS – The Needles High School Lady ’Stangs are headed to the NIAA 2A State Championship round as the number two team from the south.
The Lady ’Stangs started their playoff run with a 13-2 win over the Laughlin High School Lady Cougars on May 9.
Alex Chandler, Lady ’Stangs softball head coach, reported that Paige Murch was in the circle for the team and she did very well.
Chandler stated that the Lady ’Stangs were facing two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning and that’s when the girls’ bats came alive as they got seven runs before the third out came.
“In the game, Paige Murch had a bases-clearing triple and a two-run home run,” said Chandler. “Even though we started slow we felt the girls were more focused and that would carry into the rest of the weekend.”
