Posted

For the past two seasons, the Warrenton softball team has been the top of the class in the GAC North. This fall, the Warriors stayed perfect once again.

Warrenton captured its third GAC North title in a row, having gone 8-0 in conference play this season and 24-0 over the past three years.

The Warriors clinched the conference crown with a thrilling 4-2 nine-inning game triumph over St. Charles.

Kiera Daniel and Kaylen Reynolds each had two hits and Reynolds scored twice. Kylie Witthaus picked up the win with two scoreless innings in relief while striking out four. Kathyrn McChristy struck out eight and walked three in the first seven innings.

The day before, the Warriors rode the arm of Witthaus who hurled a five-inning no-hitter in a 13-0 win over Orchard Farm. She struck out 12 and walked none.

At the plate, Reynolds went 3 for 4 with three doubles, three RBIs and two runs. Kiersten Anderson, Rayli Duncan, Mackenzie Hurst and Witthaus had two hits apiece. Hurst also collected three RBIs.

The offensive output was more than enough for Kendall, who allowed only one hit in three innings on the mound. She struck out four and walked none.
