The White Pine High School softball team placed second in the state championship tournament held in Reno over the weekend. They had two chances to beat Lincoln for the title but lost their first game 8-6 and their second 10-4 to finish as the runner-up.
Coach Krystal Smith said that despite the loss, she considered the team’s overall season a success. The Ladycats entered the post-season with a number one seed, after having gone 15-6 during the regular season, including 13-1 in league play.
“We really fought and believed in each other,” Smith said. “It was a phenomenal season overall.”
