Lady Vikings Softball Wins District Championship

The week of district softball saw the Lady Vikings battle to a District Championship after wins over #5 seed Timberland (9-15), #1 seed FZW (22-3) in extra innings and in the district championship game another extra inning game that took two days to complete over #2 seed Holt (25-4). The Lady Vikings now advance to the State Sectionals where they will travel to FHN on Wednesday. Gametime is tentatively set for 3:30 p.m. You can view several media articles below from the week as well as the game winning strikeout and celebration video below.
