Updated: Jul 5
HUMBOLDT, Kan. – The Prairie View girls varsity made a clean sweep in regional competition, knocking off No.1 seed Humboldt 18-3 on Tuesday, May 17. The win made the Lady Buffalos repeat district champions and punched their ticket to the state tournament next week.
In games leading up to the championship district game, Prairie View held its opponents scoreless, shutting out Trinity Academy 11-0 in the first game on Monday and blanking Douglass 9-0 earlier in the evening on Tuesday.
Emma Chambers pitched the first two games in district play, pitching a no-hitter to Trinity Academy batters and allowing Douglass batters only two hits. Chambers shared pitching duties with Julia Paisley in the game against Humboldt, with the pair allowing only six hits.
The Lady Buffalos’ bats went to work early in the Trinity Academy game, picking up seven runs in the first three innings. Alyssa Page, Rian Stainbrook and Braxton Stainbrook connected for two hits each in that game, with Rian getting a triple and Braxton punching a double.
It was a similar story in the second game against Douglass. Prairie View scored three times in the first inning and piled five more runs on in the third. Paisley tapped the Douglass pitching crew for a home run, Rylee Boone got both a double and a triple, Rian Stainbrook belted out a triple and Chambers hit a double.
In the regional title game, Chambers hit three homers and Gregg scored a home run as well. Rian Stainbrook hit a triple, Boone hit two doubles and Braxton Stainbrook also hit a double.
The Lady Buffalos go on to compete in the state Class 3A tournament in Manhattan. The two-day state tournament begins next week on May 26.
