Knox won a hard fought 5-0 conference win over a greatly improved Caston Comet squad. It was Senior Night and the Redskins’ seniors shined as Knox closed their regular season with a 13-7 record. McKenzie McIntire was superb as she struck out 12 and only walked 1, while only giving up 2 hits.
Knox was paced by battery mate MaKenzie Morgan who tripled while getting two hits and two stolen bases. Fellow Senior Trishta Brewer doubled off the fence and stole home. Erin Stacy had the only other hit for Knox. Doing an excellent job of hitting behind runners, both McIntire and Jayla Williams had RBIs. Emi Rotering had a crucial bunt that moved two runners. The Redskins committed no errors.
Knox will see if their tough schedule pays off when try to defend being Sectional Champions the highly competitive Northwood Sectional next week.
