Lady Pirate Softball dominates Brownstown, Wins Sectional!

The Charlestown High School Lady Pirate Softball team made very short order in traveling to Salem and slamming the door shut on any hopes that Brownstown’s season would continue. Instead the Lady Pirates dominated the Lady Braves 12-0 to earn the program’s seventh Softball Sectional Championship, the first since 1997.

Not only did the Lady Pirates play an all around great game when it counted, the game was filled with  several subplots of note. Senior Pitcher Alli Webster, mid-way through the game completed her 800th high school career strikeout! Three Lady Pirates, Morgan Ashby, Lexi Logsdon, and Alex Hutchinson all hit Sectional Championship game home run! Senior Gracynn Jennings, who has spent most of the season out injured, was able to complete an at-bat late in the victory.
Not only did the victory provide the program with its seventh Sectional title, it ended a 16 year drought, and on the birthday of 11th year Head Coach Kevin Zollman. After the game, Coach Zollman emotionally told PPSB that he was so proud of his ladies, “there aren’t words for it”.
Charlestown (20-4) scored their 12 runs off 13 hits and while committing no errors.
