STRASBURG -Carrollton’s girls softball team is making an appearance in the Division II regional tournament this week – the first time since 1994.

The Warriors earned the berth in the regional semi finals against Zanesville Maysville this Wednesday at Pickerington by defeating West Holmes 11-6 in the district title game at Strasburg May 18.

Against the Lady Knights, the Warriors built up an early lead and held off a West Holmes rally to secure the win.

Carrollton put two runs on the board in the top of the first inning with the help of two West Holmes errors and a hit off the bat of Shelbee Stidom.

The Warriors plated nine runs in the third inning, highlighted by a three-run home run by Brenna Campbell.

Zoe Drake hit a single and Shelbee Stidom drew a walk. Campbell attempted a bunt for her first strike. There was no mistake about her second swing as it connected with the pitch from Olivia Ferguson and sailed over the fence in center field to increase the Carrollton lead to 5-0.

Following a pitching change, Kendal McFarland was hit by a pitch and advanced to second on a bunt by Courtney Shine. Kira Anderson was safe at first on a bunt single to load the bases.
