JENA – The North Webster Lady Knights dream of a state championship ended Friday against No. 3 seed Jena.
The Lady Giants showed they were worthy of their high ranking, using a barage of hits and efficient defense to knock North Webster out of the Class 3A playoffs in a 13-5 decision.
“Jena was very good,” Lady Knights head coach Alyssa Ford said. “If we were going to beat them, we were going to have to match them at the plate and we couldn’t do that.”
The loss wraps up 15-13 season for North Webster, their first under Ford.
