Lady Indians capture 3A regional
Kati Phillips (32-6) and the Lady Indians proved to be to much for the Lady Comets of Kansas, beating the Lady Comets 5-0 in the Class 3A regional final, as Phillips got the complete-game win, striking out five and giving up just two hits.
“Being able to rely on Phillips who missed the majority of her sophmore year has been a blessing this season,” said Sequoyah coach Jeff Turtle.
Symphoni Shomo was 2-for-4 for the Lady Indians (32-6) with two runs scored. The win takes the Lady Indians back to the state championships where they fell just short last season.
“The girls are all excited, but this has been their goal since day one,” said Turtle. “These girls have gone about their business with a workman like attitude. We have stayed for the most part healthy all season.
