New Hampton advances at State Softball

Posted: Updated:
FT. DODGE (KWWL) -

Fourteenth ranked New Hampton, making their first trip to state in seven years -- looked for the upset of number 3 Mid-Prairie on Tuesday afternoon.

And the Chickasaws had it going behind the bat of Megan Fitzgerald as the senior drove in Jennifer Ankrom to take the 1, nothing lead in the first.

Then in the third, Fitzgerald again with a gapper to left center that would score two more. Chickasaws looked in control up 3, to 0.

Jessica Crooks held Mid-Prairie scoreless through 6 innings, but the Golden Hawks rallied in the 7th, after getting 1 in on a sac fly. Michelle Irwin drove a base hit scoring 2 that would tie things up to put the pressure on New Hampton.

The Chickasaws responded with 2 outs and a runner on second. Ankrom drives a ball that can't be handled near the fence Chickasaws get the walk-off win 4, 3 to advance to the semifinal.

Next up New Hampton will meet up with Clarke for the right to go to the state final.
