“We didn’t hit the ball well at all,” Wilson said. “We took too many called strike threes. We played well on defense, and Skylar pitched a good game, and that’s what bailed us out.”

Despite any disappointment in the hitting, Wilson said he was elated that his girls made it to state.

“It feels great,” Wilson said. “The girls are extremely excited. That was the goal going in, and coming from the loser’s bracket, that’s impressive. I think we were the only team to have to play five teams in a row.”
