The Westerville Central softball team took on Hilliard Darby last night in a district semi-final game at Olentangy High School. Junior Cami Compson belted a home run in the bottom of the 1st and the Warhawks never looked back. Junior Emily Ruck pitched 7 innings giving up just one hit and striking out 13 batters. Senior Avrey Schumacher had 5 rbi’s – on a 2-run homer in the 3rd and a 3-run bases clearing double in the 6th. Defensively sophomore 3rd baseman Hanna Hunt and senior 1st baseman Sydney Stepp each made keys plays to thwart any chance of a Darby comeback.
The team advances to Saturday’s District Championship game versus Upper Arlington. That game is scheduled to start at 1:00 pm at Pickerington Central High School.
