District 12 Big League softball makes late push at World Series

The District 12 Big League softball team went 2-for-3 in its past three outings to improve to 3-3 at the Big League Softball World Series in Kalamazoo, Mich.

The team, which is representing the Southeast, defeated the East region champions from Laurel, Del., on Sunday and pounded the Canada representative from Windsor, Ontario, 11-1 in six innings Monday.

Southeast fell 5-3 to the Southwest region team from West Monroe, La., on Saturday.

Southeast, in fifth place in the nine-team standings with two games left, is on the outside looking in for one of two spots in Wednesday's championship game. The team will have to win both its games today and hope for some help.

In its win over Canada, Southeast collected 14 total hits. Cori Williams led the offensive onslaught with three hits. Ciara Seymour, Hannah Gatley, Peyton Collins and former Mitchell ace Cortney Radke had two hits, while Seymour and Radke doubled.

On Sunday, Williams, Radke and Heather Muccino combined to limit the East region champs to one run on six hits in a 3-1 victory.

Radke and Muccino each finished with a double and two hits.

In the loss to the Southwest region champs Saturday, Southeast led for much of the game until Southwest scored twice in the sixth inning.

Madison Morris doubled and Peyton Collins had two hits in the loss.

Southeast, comprised of players from northern Pinellas and southern Pasco counties, will play its final games of the World Series today.
