Boone Central softball season ends in sub-district

Boone Central began postseason action with a thrilling moment of success, but could not sustain the momentum in the C-8 Sub-District final.

The Cardinals, seeded #2 in C-8, opened Monday’s tournament at Hastings with a walk-off victory over #3 St. Paul (11-18). With the score tied 3-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Ashtyn Hedlund and Avery Olnes rapped consecutive singles and advanced on a passed ball. Jeslynn Beckman then singled to score Hedlund.

Boone Central (13-14) advanced to the sub final where the Cards dropped a 10-0 decision to #1 seed Hastings St. Cecelia (21-11).
