North Miami wins softball state title

INDIANAPOLIS — It took extra innings Saturday, 10 total frames in fact, for North Miami’s softball team to make school history. The Warriors defeated North Daviess 3-1 at Indianapolis Ben Davis to earn the school’s first state title in a girls team sport.

With the score tied at one North Miami came to bat in the 10th inning. Josie Wood was issued a one-out intentional walk bringing up Josie Knauff. The sophomore hit a high chopper on the second pitch of the at-bat to the shortstop spot and the ND defender committed an error.

The ball trickled past the left fielder and Wood never slowed as she rounded third base to score the winning run. Knauff went to third on the throw to the plate and later came in to score on a single by Savannah Davis.

Alicyn Enyart led North Miami with two hits. Wood had a double, and four intentional walks along with a pair of stolen bases, which led to two runs scored.

While North Daviess did what it could to take the bat out of her hands, they were not able to limit Woods’ contributions while she was in the pitching circle. The lone North Daviess run was unearned due to a fielding error by Carlee Lefebvre.

Wood tossed a complete-game three-hitter with 17 strikeouts and three walks. The Indiana University recruit allowed just four balls to reach the outfield.

In other championship games: South Spencer beat Southmont 1-0 for the Class 2A title; Leo beat Gibson Southern 2-0 for the 3A title; and Bloomington South beat Hamilton Southeastern 6-2 for the 4A crown.
