Lady Mountaineers cruise on to quarterfinals

Sports

The Mt. Vernon Lady Mountaineers are on to the Missouri Spring Softball Quarterfinals after beating Greenfield 16-1.

Lady Mountaineers pitcher, Katelyn Kotlarz, struck out 9 of the first 12 batters she faced and finished the game with 10 total strikeouts. Kotlarz entered the fifth and final frame without giving up a hit, but her perfect game bid was broken up with the lone hit that she would allow.

Mt. Vernon would also have their scoreless inning streak broken at 32 and two-thirds innings, but since starting the district tournament the Lady Mountaineers have outscored opponents 40-1.

They will face Purdy in the state quarterfinals on Thursday at Purdy.
