Choudrant 13 Quitman 2 (Monday): One of the hardest thing to do in sports is beat a team three times in a row. Especially when the one you are trying to complete the tri-fecta against the defending state champion and current #1 ranked team in Division I among “non-select” schools. By pounding out 14 hits and scoring six runs in the top of the third and adding five more over the next two innings, Choudrant made sure that they would salvage a game out of the three game set. Conversely QHS managed just four hits, including a Cam Deal double off winning pitcher Eddie Callendar. Deal and Ponder both stole two bases for the Wolverines.

TEAM 1 2 3 4 5 R H E
Choudrant (14-4) 2 0 6 2 3 13 14 0

SB – Deal 2, Ponder 2, Carter
