Hawks walk off with fifth in 1A state
Lynnville-Sully nabs two wins, captures fifth in softball
With a swift slide by Kristal Beyer and a fist pump from coach Stacey Alberts, the Lynnville-Sully Hawks’ softball season ended on the highest of high notes.
The Hawks came into the bottom of the seventh inning against Remsen-St. Mary’s trailing by a run after R-S broke the tie with a squeeze bunt in the top of the inning. That was a run that could have broken the Hawks’ spirits, but as this team showed on Wednesday, nothing or no one can do that.
Sophomore Lysandra James roped a pitch back up the middle to lead off the seventh. Beyer then pulled a pitch just inside the third base line for another base hit, putting the tying run on first base. Following a fielder’s choice that put both runners into scoring position, pinch-hitter Bayli Van Manen hit a grounder to second base. The R-S second baseman fired home much too late and the game was tied.
