Despite a valiant comeback by Danville, a solo home run in the top of the sixth inning by leadoff hitter Caroline Wollenburg spurred the Green Wave to a 5-4 victory over the Blue Devils in the Division IV district finals at Pickerington Central’s softball complex.

“We have struggled with putting runs together most of the season,” Danville coach Mike Beheler said. “When we were down 4-1 and tied the game at 4, the girls showed a lot of heart. I am really proud of the girls. They got the home run and that was it. We kept fighting and I am proud of the team.”

Pitcher Kat Mickley, who has been one of the most solid foundations for the Blue Devils all season, gave up seven hits, four walks and struck out six batters. On the other side, senior pitcher Maggie Yocum gave up four hits and struck out an incredible 14 batters.
