Fruitvale, Van earn Area championships


Courtesy Photo The Fruitvale Lady Cats were scheduled to take on Cayuga in the Regional Quarterfinal with a win over Rivercrest in the Area round. Team members include Emma Shaw, Bryce Yates, Emily Driskill, Audrey Robinson, Felisha Hickman, Haiden Lane, Anna Littlejohn, Harlie Moore, Bryli Stanley, Karen Crane, Makayla David, Emily Williams, Cierra Craft and Adison Allen.

The Fruitvale Lady Cats and Van Lady Vandals each kept their postseason dreams alive last week, recording Area round wins over tough opponents to reach the Regional Quarterfinal. Two other county teams, Canton and Martins Mill, watched their season come to a close in the Area round.

Canton

The Canton Eaglettes 2015 softball season came to an end at home on May 8, with an 11-4 loss at the hands of the Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks. The win completed a two game sweep by the Lady Hawks over Canton in the best-of-three Area round playoff series between the two teams.

In game one of the best-of-three series on May 7, Canton struggled mightily on offense as Pleasant Grove’s Madison Haltom carried the Lady Hawks to a 3-0, perfect game victory over the Eaglettes.

Haltom went all seven innings for Pleasant Grove, striking out 12 batters without allowing a single Canton batter to reach via a hit, walk, hit by pitch, or error in the win.
