In high school softball yesterday Leeton defeated LaMonte with a one hit shutout from Megan Uptegrove. The final score was Leeton 23 La Monte 0.

Comments from Coach Moore at Leeton – The Leeton Lady Bulldogs took the field Wednesday against the Le Monte Lady Vikings in a Mid-State Conference match up. The Lady Bulldogs used tough pitching, good defense, and discipline hitting to defeat the Vikings 23-0 in three innings. Megan Uptegrove threw a one hitter, striking out 4 and walking none. Uptegrove and Junior Shiane Sullins led the offense attack belting out a double a piece and knocking in four runs each.

Current Overall Record: 8-5

Next Game: Friday 5/4/12 Leeton v. Cole Camp in Leeton at 4:30
