The sixth run in the sixth inning was all the softball team from Bald Eagle Area High School needed to win the District 6 Class 3A championship on May 31. They beat Chestnut Ridge, 9-5, in the finals played at Saint Francis University.
This secures their ticket to play at the PIAA state championship tournament. They play South Park 7:30 p.m. Monday in the first round of states at Penn State’s Beard Field in University Park.
Four players were also named to the District 6 All-Star team, this season. They are outfielders Makenna Baney and Mara Hockenberry, second baseman Kaleigh Kinley and pitcher Madison Peters.
