Warriors win Third Straight Title On Walk Off Grand Slam

Down to their final strike and trailing 3-2 in the eighth inning, the Warrior's Amirah Michaeli's grand slam lifted Washington to their third straight state title and fifth over all.  Warrior players were waiting at home plate and swarmed Michaeli after she circled the bases while a large Warrior crowd erupted.

Trailing 1-0 in the fourth, senior Emily Winckler's lead off single got things going for Washington. Junior Reagan Sheldon followed with a sac bunt that moved Winckler to scoring postion, and senior Mic Mayer tied the game the next at bat with a single that scored Winckler. Junior Madisen Owan then put down another sac bunt that moved Mayer to second. Michaeli then singled to score sophomore Anna Buxengard pinch running for Mayer and the Warrior led 2-1. 

Roosevelt tied the game at 2-2 in the fifth, and the scored stayed that way through the regulation seven innings

Extra innings are played under the international rule, meaning each team starts their half of the inning with a runner on second. Roosevelt was able to score their runner to take a 3-2 lead.

For the Warriors, junior Macy Trujillo started the eighth on second. Winckler singled to short right but Trujillo could not advance. Sheldon laid down a sac bunt to move the Warrior runners to second and third with one out. Roosevelt opted to walk Mayer to load the bases.  Owan reached base on a fielders choice when Roosevelt threw Trujillo out at home on a force, and that brought Micheali to the plate with bases still loaded and two outs.  

Michaeli fouled off a number of pitched to bring the count to 0-2. It was there that the she got the pitch she was looking for and drove it well past the left field fence to deliver the Warriors the 2013 state title. 

Warrior junior Anna Nichols pitched all eight innings for the Warriors.

The Warriors started state tourney play with an 8-6 win over Brookings after trailing 3-0 in the first inning. Washington tied it at 3-3 in the bottom of the first with singles by Winckler, Sheldon and Mayer. Senior Alyssa Aschlager was 2 for 3 while Winckler, Mayer, Michaeli and Caitlyn Lint we all 2 for 4. 

In the second round, Washington knocked off previously top ranked Rapid City Central 3-0. Junior Maycee Trujillo's lead off single in the first led to the only run the Warriors would need. In the fifth, Anna Buxengard's lead off single followed by doubles from Winckler and Sheldon put the Warriors up 3-0. Nichols pitched the shutout.

The Warriors met top seeded Rapid City Stevens in the semi finals and came out on top 12-6 to move Washington to the championship game. Junior Madisen Owan's three run homer in the fourth broke a 2-2 tie and put the Warriors ahead 5-2. Owan was 2 for 4 at the plate. Leading 8-4 going into the sixth, the Warriors scored four more runs to seal the win and allow them to wait until Saturday for Roosevelt, who advanced out of the losers bracket of the double elimination. 

Including their 4-0 run at the state tournament, the  Washington Warrior varsity finishes the 2013 season 27-7 and will celebrate their title with a post season banquet at 6pm October 15th in the Washington Commons.
