State Tournament

Pet Party & Auction is Sunday Oct. 2nd

(More Info)

It took 9 innings for anyone to score a run ... but Collinsville got in done in the 9th after Katie Pellitier drew a 1-out walk and Hillary Brown's 2-out triple sent Katie to the plate. Hillary scored later on a passed ball and the Cards held Claremore Sequoyah in their half of the 9th for a 2-0 win. Kelli Dunagan pitched the complete game and had lots of defensive help in the field.

Katie Pellitier hit a near home home in the 2nd inning (about 6in from the top of the right field wall) which set her up for walks in the 5th, 7th and 9th as she only got a few pitches close enough to swing at after that 2nd inning swing. The Lady Cards had the bases loaded in the 7th with 1 out but couldn't get a run across.

The Regional finals win sends Collinsville to the State Tournament next week.

Katie Pelletier rounds 3rd with the winning run on Hillary Brown's triple in the 9th inning Thursday as Hillary is between 1st and 2nd.

Hillary Brown (#16) snagged this Claremore Sequoyah popup near the 1st base line with right fielder Kayti Bryant (#18) backing her up.
Kelli Dunagan (#11 above pitched a 9 inning shutout of Sequoyah but was nearly matched by Claremore's pitcher (below) as the Lady Cards couldn't get a run across until the 9th. Mandy Clark (#6 3rd baseman) for Sequoyah was on Collinsville's roster last year.
Coaches Irvine and Davis both send signals to the Collinsville defense while the dugout provides visual support with a line of yellow softballs and lots of shouting. Although I didn't get a photo, I did see the "wave" in the stands full of vocal students and friends.

Jessica Carney (#7) was a half step too late to score for the Cards in the 7th inning as she was forced out at the plate with the bases loaded.
