THAT'S IT-WALNUT SOFTBALL BOWS OUT TO EXIRA-EHK


 

(Walnut) The game ended but nobody wanted to leave.

 

Exira-EHK put together a big inning late to end Walnut's softball season and complete the final game in Warrior softball history. The Warrior fans gave the team a standing ovation after a fantastic final season came to an end with a 11-6 loss in 10 innings.

 

Exira-EHK will move on to play Coon Rapids-Bayard on Friday while Walnut will go on to a sharing agreement with AHST beginning in the fall. Even winning coach Jana Smith of Exira-EHK would share afterwards that the win was bitter-sweet in a way.
