COTTONWOOD FALLS — Moundridge’s softball season ended on Wednesday with a second-round 4-2 loss to Northern Heights in Class 2-1A regional play.

The Wildcats actually out-hit Northern Heights, 8-7. 

“That was our best game that we put together all year,” MHS coach Aaron Annis said.  “That was a good team we played, but I still feel we were the better team. We had runners in scoring positions, but just couldn’t find the gaps to score some runs. Jadah Moore pitched an amazing game. This was by far her best game on the year. I’m very proud of the effort and hard work that this team gave. I’m looking forward to next season as I will have nine starters coming back ready to make another run.”

Chelsey Knight and Bethany Stucky collected two hits apiece.

Moundridge had coasted to an 11-1 victory in Game 1 over Lebo-Waverly. 

Walks helped out the ‘Cats as they actually had only three hits. Ellen Durst and Keira Seibrant drove in two runs apiece. Moore pitched a solid game.

The Wildcats finished the year 7-12.
