At 18-9, the Colonel Crawford Eagles will take on 22-5 and second ranked Rockford Parkway in the Division IV softball state semifinal on Thursday at 5:30pm at Akron's Firestone Stadium.  But back in mid to late April, Crawford did not look like a team that had a shot at making the final four after being hit with a rash of injuries and standing at 8-7 after 15 games.  Eagles coach Chuck Huggins said his team never lost focus and did the best they could to play through the injuries.

To this point the team's focus seems to have payed off with CC making their first trip to the final four since 2002 beating 22-8 Jackson-Milton 2-1 and 23-7 Vienna Mathews 3-0 in eight innings in the regionals.  Crawford beat a good pitcher in Mathew's Cheyenne Eggens who fanned 17 Eagles.  They will see another in Parkway's Sierra Fenton who pitched her team to a 10-0 six inning win over Edgerton in the Panthers regional final.  Fenton sports an era of just over one and Huggins adds that the defense behind her is just as good.  For her part, Crawford pitcher Nickyla Gaverick gave up only three hits to Mathews last Saturday while striking out six and walking just two.  She also was able to pitch out of a jam in the bottom of the seventh inning with the winning run at third and nobody out.
