FSHS softball wins two at SMNW

April 25, 2013


— Free State High’s softball team defeated Shawnee Mission Northwest twice in eight innings Wednesday, 6-3 and 6-4.

Lily Ross hit a two-run triple in the eighth inning in the opener to put the Firebirds ahead, and Kylie “We were down 3-0 and didn’t panic,” FSHS coach Lee Ice said.

In the second game, the Firebirds loaded the bases in the eighth inning on a walk by Roth and bunt singles by Cobb and A’Liyah Rogers. Emily Byers then hit a one-out double to score two runs.

“We had 29 hits tonight, and that’s against a very good team,” Ice said. “Both teams swung the bats very well, and we got some key base hits late in both games.”

The Firebirds (10-1) will play host to Shawnee Mission West at 4:15 p.m. today.
