The Lincoln County High softball team destroyed Laughlin during a home doubleheader last Friday. As the Lady Lynx near the end of their season, the team sits atop the Class 2A Southern League, with two games remaining.
Laughlin wasn’t ready for Lincoln’s dominant pitching. In the first game, Hannah Lytle put on a clinic, and the offense came out strong for an 18-0 win. Kailey Kelley hit a home run, which gave the Lady Lynx all the momentum.
Freshman Sadie Soderborg started game two, and pitched well, giving up zero runs. It was more of the same offensively, and the game ended after the top of the third at 16-0.
Lincoln headed to The Meadows on Friday for its last league games of the year.
The Class 2A Southern League Softball Championship tournament is scheduled Thursday, May 11 through Saturday, May 13 at Mountain View Christian School in Las Vegas.
The top four teams in the league will advance to the tournament. Lincoln will either be the #1 or #2 seed, depending on how today’s games turn out and how Needles (18-3, 11-1) does against Mountain View (3-8, 1-10). Lake Mead (10-7, 8-4) and Laughlin (13-8-1, 8-4) round out the top four teams.
The top two teams out of the tournament will advance to the 2017 NIAA 2A Nevada State High School Softball Championship tournament, which will be held Thursday through Saturday, May 18 – 20, at a site to be announced in Las Vegas.
