Hmmm…how do I put this? KNOX WON THE REGIONAL IN DRAMATIC FASHION WITH A 5-3 WIN OVER HIGHLAND! The Redskins improved to 22-2 as their magical season continues with them becoming one of the few Knox teams to advance to the Semi State. Knox will play highly regarded Belmont on Saturday (more details about the Semi State to follow)
McKenzie McIntire scattered 5 hits,striking out 4 & walking 3 as she pitched herself out of a couple of jams and she was bailed out by excellent defense, including a tremendous rifle shot to home off the arm of Riley Goetz following her catch in center field, she then fired a perfect strike home to MaKenzie Morgan who put the tag on the Highland runner to not only complete a double play, but that play ended the game.
Libby McEntee & Leslie Kroft banged out doubles. McEntee had two hits while Riley Goetz and Sarah Stephenson laid down critical bunts.
The Redskins would like to thank the firemen & policeman who gave us such a first class escort into town tonight. I think we woke up all of Knox!! Also, thanks to our fans who made the haul to see us play and show what Redskin Pride is all about.
