Flashback to this day in 2018
Alexander Central won their 10 State Championship. They beat Cleveland 2-0 the night before in in a long rain-delayed game in Greensboro. On this day in 2018, AC beat Cleveland 6-4 in 11 innings. The Lady Cougars rallied for 3 runs in the 7th to force extra innings.
Shortstop Julie Gast and pitcher Chesney Millsaps were both 3-for-6 in Saturday’s game that was interrupted an hour by a lightening delay. Millsaps and catcher Alexis Walter each had two RBIs.
Millsaps pitched all 11 innings. She allowed nine hits and struck out two. She was named the Final’s MVP. The win earned a title for coach Darrell Adkins, who would retire prior to the next season.
