FORT WHITE - P.K. Yonge is the new Class 3A District 5 softball champion.

To claim the first-place trophy, the Lady Wave first had to dethrone defending champ Chiefland in the semifinals before defeating host school Fort White in the final.

Chiefland advanced to the April 16 semifinal by defeating Dixie County in the quarters.

Chiefland had lost twice to P.K. during the regular season, but both games were nailbiters.

The third meeting would also be a close game. In fact, it was tight until P.K. scored three times in the bottom of the sixth. The 4-0 victory paved the way to the final for the semi-private Gainesville school.

Chiefland's final record for 2008 is 8-10.

Chiefland pitcher Brittany Davis put the Wave down in order through the first three innings.

Meanwhile, the Lady Indians threatened in the second when Brooke Williams and Katelynn Allen singled. Winning pitcher Brittany Posey worked out of the jam by getting the next two batters.
