Pearl City wins first ever softball sectional title

Posted:
PECATONICA (WREX) -

Pearl City softball won a historic sectional championship Friday night, clinching the 1-A title in dramatic fashion at Pecatonica with a 3-0 victory over NUIC neighbor Lena-Winslow.

Kendra Melville and Bailey Baldauf went toe-to-toe in the circle, taking a scoreless game into the fifth inning before the Lady Wolves scored the game's only runs. Bronte Wright drove in the first run with an RBI base hit, and then sophomore Tyra Clark crushed a two-run home run over the left field fence.

It's the first sectional title in Lady Wolves softball history, and now they await their opponent in Monday's 1-A Super-Sectional at Geneseo.
