OSAWATOMIE — The Wellsville High School softball won its third straight Pioneer League regular-season championship Friday by sweeping Osawatomie in Osawatomie.

Wellsville won 9-3 and 7-1 and finished as undefeated champions in back-to-back seasons.

“It was one of our goals to win league,” Wellsville coach Chris Rose said. “It is something special. We have to finish the season strong.”

Wellsville continued its offensive onslaught. Rose said the Eagles hit the ball hard in both games.

“We put the ball in play,” he said. “We found some gaps. We did not play as well as we would like defensively.”

Moriah Kayhill had a couple of hits and two RBIs. Rayne Right had three hits and an RBI. Kaylynn Peacock had two hits.

Peacock was the winning pitcher in the nightcap. Rose said she had good command, threw hard and was real efficient.

Lauren McDaniels had three hits. Tori Broers had two RBIs. Right had two hits and an RBI. Ashley Sparks had an RBI in each game.    

West Franklin

The Falcons were swept Friday at home against Mission Valley. West Franklin fell 10-0 and 9-2.

“We struggled to hit the ball in the first game,” West Franklin coach Michelle Haupt said. “In the second game, we hit the ball better but couldn’t string the hits together to score the base runners.”

Brittany Crump had four hits, including a triple. Jessica Noyons had three hits with an RBI. December Cummings threw out three base runners.
