The White Pine High School Ladycats softball team didn’t stumble after their final home game of the season was suspended due to weather conditions Tuesday, winning 14-0 in West Wendover on Wednesday.

The game was originally suspended after two innings, with the Ladycats holding a slim 1-0 lead when a mix of rain and snow made the field unplayable. Though the team celebrated its three seniors as part of senior day, the team had to travel to Wendover to finish the game the following day. The victory secures a number one seed for the Ladycats heading into the postseason, a feat that coach Krystal Smith said was a first for her.

After another one-run inning in the third, the Ladycats found their swing in the fourth inning, firing off 12 runs to put the game out of reach for the Wolverines.

Senior Alli Huntington led the team with three hits, though seven Ladycats recorded at least one hit according to www.maxpreps.com. The team finished the game with a .500 batting average.

White Pine will start the playoffs against Battle Mountain on Friday in Lovelock. The Ladycats won both games of a double-header against the Longhorns back on May 11.Alli Huntington softball 5.16
