The Wright City softball team jumped out to a quick 1-o advantage in its district opener Oct. 12. However, top seed Hallsville ended any doubt of a first-round upset with five runs in the third in the 9-2 victory.

The Wildcats ended the season with a 10-11 record.

Wright City scored its lone runs in the first inning when it grabbed a 1-0 lead and scored again in the top of the fourth to close the gap to 5-2. However, Hallsville responded with a run in each of the fourth and fifth innings and tacked on two more in the six.

The Wildcats were held to five hits overall. Collecting hits for the squad were Lydia Clubb, Tristen Head, Paige Rees, Abigail Vossen and Sophia Wegrzyn.

On the mound, Emma Thomas suffered the loss. She pitched 2.2 innings, allowing five earned runs. Hannah Kendall pitched two innings, giving up four runs (none earned), while walking four. Wegrzyn also pitched 1.1 innings.

Hallsville advanced to the district game following a 13-8 win over Mexico in the semifinals. Fulton captured the title with a 12-5 win.
