"We played catch up from the start and were behind 11-5 in the fourth," Elam said. "Pitchers Austin Howard and Devin Noble didn't have their normal good 'stuff~, and Boys Ranch pounded out 17 hits in the first four innings" Elam put in senior Jon McGlaun Lady Broncos finish season By Sandy Anderberg The Lady Broncos met a very strong Clyde-Eula team in the Area round and, despite playing hard, were eliminated from the play offs 0-11 and 4-6. Clyde-Eula is the defending state champions. "We just made too many errors in both games," head coach Gary Jack said. "They pounded us in the first game, but we came back and actually had a chance to win the second game, but we just couldn't pull it off. We would have liked to have won that second game to force a third, but it just didn't happen" Junior Sade Cobb was on the mound and, according to Jack, pitched a good series. ,"Sade pitched great for us" Jack said. "She pitched her heart out" In the second game, the ladies had a chance to tie the score in the seventh inning, but their opponent was just too good, and they were not able togethy " I've ever seen" Jack said. "Two out of the last three years, we have played the defending state champs. The state champion has come out of our region for the last few years." Jack gave credit to several play- ers and is excited about the prospects for next year. "The three seniors we have did a good job for us this year. Jessi Howard, Sarah Scrivner, and Erica Depew played hard for us. The team is improving, and hopefully they will continue to play in summer league to prepare for next season."
