    June 12, 2012 No comments

    The Plainfield Quakers softball team took home its first-ever Class 4A state championship defeating Huntington North 3-1 Saturday night.

    Senior Courtney Collins gave up two doubles in the fourth after a scoreless three innings from both sides, allowing the Vikings to get on the scoreboard. The Quakers’ pitcher finished the game allowing 5 hits while striking out 9.

    Down by one run heading into the bottom of the sixth inning the Quakers had not gotten a hit off of Huntington North sophomore pitcher Erin Rethlak.

    Plainfield’s Brooke Bryant led off the bottom of the sixth with a walk followed by Maggie Stahl’s single the Quakers’ first hit of the night.

    Rethlak recorded a strikeout for the first out in the Quaker sixth but senior Hallie Johanningsmeier reached first on a slap bunt down the third base line to load the bases.

    Mackenzie Reeder followed and ran the count full before watching ball four go wide to force in Bryant with the tying score. A wild pitch brought Stahl sliding into home from third and Plainfield held a 2-1 advantage.

    The Quakers then pulled off a triple steal to plate their final run of the game.

    Collins took the mound and ended the Viking’s season with three consecutive strikeouts to put a cap on the come from behind victory and the state championship.
