By Jesse Lamar
Sports Reporter
LYNN  -  The Lynn Lady Bears claimed their Area Championship on Tuesday, April 28. The Lady Bears faced off against the Hackleburg Lady Panthers in the finals after defeating the Brilliant Lady Tigers and the Phillips She-Bears in the opening day of competition.
In the first day of the tournament, that the Lady Bears hosted, the Lady Bears were geared up to face off against the Phillips She-Bears. Lynn defeated them in the first round with a 11-1 victory. In the second game of the tournament the Bears were set to face off against the Brilliant Tigers. After jumping on an early lead 5-0 the Lady Bears managed an 8-2 victory to advance into the championship game of the tournament. In the third and final game, the Lady Bears were lined up to play against the Lady Panthers. Hackleburg would have had to beat the hosting Lady Bears two times to claim the area title.
In the championship game, Mackenzie Tidwell was the winning pitcher for the hosting team. She pitched the entire game, racking up 17 first pitch strikes and four strikeouts. She also kept a .43 WHIP through the game.
Some notable batting stats from the hosting team are, Tidwell and Lilli Ergle each getting a hit. Tidwell and Hannah Alsup both got on base after being walked. Morgan Foster and Kayla Pruitt each had an RBI. Pruitt also had a home run in the game.
The game started out with a quiet opening inning from both teams, but Lynn tacked on their two runs in the bottom of the second to round the scoring for the entire ballgame. The Lady Bears had four hits through the game but kept their score at two after meeting the strong defense of the Hackleburg Lady Panthers. Lynn also proved they had a strong willed defense through the game. The Panthers managed two hits but smart defensive plays kept them off the board and allowed the Lynn Lady Bears to claim the win.
With the win, the Lynn Lady Bears will advance into the Regional Tournament in hopes to continue their post season efforts with an appearance at state.
