Delaney Schnathorst and Alyvia Dubois hit back-to-back two-out singles in the bottom of the third to lift top-ranked Carlisle to the 4A state title.

North Scott nearly tied it in the sixth, but Sam Lee was tagged out on a play at the plate while trying to score from second on a wild pitch.

Molly Hoekstra allowed five hits, two walks and no runs in 5 2/3 innings for the win and Lexxi Link got the save with 1 1/3 hitless innings of relief.

CLASS 5A CHAMPIONSHIP

Valley pounded out 16 hits and scored eight runs to knock off the top-ranked Warriors in the final game of the day.

The Tigers tied the score at 4-4 on a fielder's choice and error in the top of the fourth, then took their first and decisive lead in the fifth on Hailey Etzel's two-RBI single. Maggie House added insurance with an RBI single in the seventh and later scored on a wild pitch.

Etzel finished with four RBIs. Alex Honnold was 2-for-3 and scored twice. Gianna Lara was 4-for-4 and hit a solo home run in the second.

Delaney Taylor was 2-for-4 and scored two runs for the Warriors. Heidi Wheeler and Reagan Bartholomew both drove in two.
