The Col. Crawford Eagles put themselves back into the Division IV district final with a 10-0 win over Plymouth at Shelby.  The Eagles would score all the runs they would need in the top of the first inning jumping out to a 6-0 lead putting the Big Red in a hole they couldn't climb out of.  Crawford pounded out 11 hits with Lexi Hoeph, Kendra Hudson, Nickyla Gaverick, Bri Rankins, Courtney Tinkey, Leianna Massie, Cassie Sager and Jada Klingenberger all getting hits.

Pitching wise, Gaverick gave up two hits while striking out four.  Despite the loss, Plymouth's Addyson Horne struck out nine but was hurt by her team's five errors.  With the loss the Big Red finished at 16-9, a 13 win improvement from 2012.  With the win Col.Crawford advances to Saturday's Division IV district final at noon against NCC foe Crestline at Shelby.  Both teams come in at 15-9.  It will also be the third time in the last four seasons that the two have squared off in the district final.  The Eagles won the previous two times, in 2010 1-0 and 2011, 12-2.  Both games were also played at Shelby. Crestline comes in as defending D-4 district champs after downing Seneca East last season 2-1.  The Bulldogs earned their way back to this season's D-4 final by beating the Tigers again 5-2 on Tuesday.
