Lady Indians edged out in pitching duel

-A A +A
By Sean Arnold

The Chiefland softball team found itself in a pitching duel between its former ace and its young phenom in a high-stakes district semifinal game in Trenton.

Bell senior Kensley Durrance and the Lady Bulldog defense foiled a masterful outing by CMHS eighth-grader Bria Hinkle, as BHS prevailed 1-0 to advance to the district championship on May 2 at TMHS and qualify for the regional playoffs.

It was the second time this season third-seeded Chiefland lost a 1-0 game against No. 2 seed Bell, which will face No. 1-ranked Trenton in the championship.

The end of Chiefland’s season also means farewell to one of the program’s all-time best sluggers, Macie Thomas, who holds multiple single-season hitting records, including most doubles in a season, and who is the last remaining starting pieces of Chiefland’s 2017 state finals team, which marked the end of a four-year run that included three state championships. It was a Thomas double that lifted CMHS to the state title game that season.
