GO 6-0, WIN WICHITA TOURNAMENT!

By William

INMAN – The Central Kansas Lady Crushers 14U fastpitch softball team had a huge weekend as they won six straight games to take the Championship at the Wichita Fun in the Sun Softball Tournament.

After barely getting by in their first two games with a 2-1 win over the Hays Hurricanes and an 8-7 victory over Sluggers Lance, the 14U Lady Crushers scored three straight runaway wins over the Kansas Nitro (10-1), TRYC Bomber (11-0) and Sluggers Lance (6-0). This put them in the tournament championship game against their first opponent the Hays Hurricanes, where the Lady Crushers pulled off another 2-1 victory to take the first-place trophy and finish the weekend 6-0.

In GAME ONE, the Lady Crushers offense was led by Kohlbie Craft as she pounded out a double while also getting a stolen base. Brett Young and Haely Hagemann also stole one base each.

Kaci Young went the distance for the Lady Crushers, holding the Hurricanes to just six hits, one earned run and two walks while striking out eight.

Despite five runs in the third inning by Sluggers Lance to trail 6-4 during GAME TWO, the Lady Crushers added three runs in the third and another in the fourth to earn their 8-7 victory.

Kaci Young had a huge game at the plate as she belted a home run as one of her two hits while also getting three runs batted in and scoring twice. Brett Young also had two hits while scoring two runs. Adi Acala hit for a double and Emma Boese had a triple as well.

Addison Chapman and Kaci Young manned the mound for the Lady Crushers and combined for nine strikeouts.

In their THIRD GAME on Saturday, the Lady Crushers scored five runs in both the first and second innings on their way to the dominating 10-1 victory over the Kansas Nitro.

Six different Lady Crusher batters got hits in the game with Adelyn Barrow getting credit for two of those while Brett Young and Jayden Orth each stole a pair of bases.

Emma Boese and Adalyn Herrera split time on the mound for the Lady Crushers in the game.

GAME FOUR turned out to be a no-hitter by pitcher Addison Chapman for the Lady Crushers as they used a five run first inning and a four run second to score a commanding 11-2 win over the TRYC Bombers.

Both Kaci Young and Haely Hagemann each had two hits while Hagemann drove in a total of four runs while Adi Acala scored three times.  Chapman finished the game with six strikeouts and just four walks.

The Lady Crushers threw another no-hitter in GAME FIVE as they shutout Sluggers Lance 6-0.

Kaci Young was responsible for the no-hitter as she threw 64 pitches, including 43 strikes, in four innings while striking out five and walking just two.

Haely Hagemann, Kohlbie Craft, Jayden Orth, and Emma Boese each had a pair of hits while Hagemann scored twice.

The Lady Crushers faced the Hays Hurricanes for the second time during the weekend in the final game and scored their second straight 2-1 victory of them to earn the Fun in the Sun Tournament Championship.

Jayden Orth, Brett Young and Adelyn Barrow each had a hit to lead the offense with Young’s hit being a double.

Kaci Young went the distance on the mound for the second straight game. In the championship game Young threw 62 pitches in four innings while giving up just three hits, walking two and striking out four.

When you include games played last September and October, the 14U Lady Crushers are now 10-4-1 for the season.
