The championship round has arrived at the 2019 Iowa high school state softball tournament.
Two state titles were decided Thursday night at Rogers Sports Complex in Fort Dodge.
CLASS 1A CHAMPIONSHIP
No. 1 Collins-Maxwell 4, No. 3 Clarksville 3
Reagan Franzen's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth scored courtesy runner Avery Fricke and vaulted Collins-Maxwell to the Class 1A title.
The Spartans tied it earlier in the inning on Mikayla Hogue's single and an error after Clarksville took the lead in the top of the sixth on Bailey Myers' RBI single.
Hogue was 2-for-2 and got the win, scattering eight hits over seven innings while striking out 10.
CLASS 2A CHAMPIONSHIP
Abby Flanagan struck out 16 and North Linn claimed the 2A title in its first trip to the state softball tournament.
Flanagan allowed only four hits and two walks. She gave up just one run in three state tournament games and was named all-tournament captain.
The Lynx got the offense they needed in the bottom of the second as Grace Flanagan reached on an error and came around to score on Jill Smith's single. Smith went to third on a wild pitch and scored on Natalie Gallery's base hit. Gallery scored North Linn's third run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly from Jenna Lemley.
