Medina seeks berth in state softball tourney
Fresh from capturing a first ever sectional title, the Medina High softball team is now seeking to earn a first ever berth in the state playoffs.
Medina will face Depew for the overall Section VI Class B championship and a spot in the state playoffs at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Williamsville North.
Seeded No. 3 in Class B2, Medina earned that elusive first ever sectional title by nipping No. 2 Fredonia 1-0 in the semifinals and No. 1 Eden 5-4 in the finals last week. Top seeded Depew claimed the B1 title with a 2-0 win over No. 2 Alden.
Senior pitcher Emily Kams anchors an otherwise underclassmen dominated Mustangs lineup which also includes sophomore Ashlee Howell at catcher, sophomore Brandi Guild at first base, freshman Lacey Kenward at second, junior Alisha Scroger at shortstop, freshman Morgan Allis at third, sophomore Ryenn Oliver in left field, junior Destiny Satkowski in center and junior Alyssa Beyer in right.
Medina, which also ended a 12 year drought by capturing a one-third share of the Niagara-Orleans League championship, brings a 13-4 record into the state qualifier contest.
