Wayne softball claims home tourney title


The Wayne High softball team defeated Arlington 6-1 to claim the championship trophy at the Wayne Softball Invitational on Saturday at the Wayne Softball Complex.

Wayne put up three runs in the first inning to take the lead for good and rode the pitching of Kendall Dorey, who was threatened only once in the second inning after four consecutive walks brought home the only Eagle run.

Wayne opened the tournament with a 17-5 win over Centura/Central Valley and shut out Twin River 12-0 in the semifinals to advance to the championship game.

Highway 91 took consolation honors with a 13-7 win over Twin River. Ponca defeated Pierce 11-2 in the game for fifth place while Centura/Central Valley handled Ord 14-2 in the seventh-place game.
