Repeat for Lady Wolverines
The Lady Wolverines started the year with a goal and battled through all obstacles to return to State this year to claim another championship.
“We knew what had to be done and we knew we had to fight the entire season,” said catcher Autumn Frost. “And knowing, we did just that.”
Infielder Mamie Hollenhead agreed and has the personal experience to back it up. Hollenhead took a line drive to the jaw earlier in the season and was sidelined for several weeks.
“This season has been definitely one to remember,” Hollenhead said. “With God on our side, we have powered through so many obstacles and were able to meet our big goal this season.”
The Lady Wolverines made a quick run through playoffs, dusting Mantachie and Hatley in two-game series sweeps to set up their meeting with Taylorsville at Freedom Park.
In Game One, the Lady Wolverines took a come-from-behind 3-2 win in the bottom of the seventh to hold an advantage in the series.
In Saturday’s game, the Cumberland girls got straight to business, taking and holding their lead for a 12-4 win and State Champ title.
Senior pitcher Bailie Springfield was on the hill for both wins – this year and in 2013.
“Winning State back-to-back is a memory that I will never forget,” Springfield said. “I wouldn’t trade my team for anything. We work so hard together and we’re all a big, happy family. I’m just so thankful and blessed to have the teach and coaches that I have.”
Frost summed up the team’s satisfaction with a return win at Freedom Ridge Park in two words.
“Feels amazing,” Frost said.
