Lady Muckers travel north for state title

The Tonopah High School softball team has qualified for the Nevada 1A softball state tournament after their huge performances in the regional tournament last week.

Senior pitcher Jessica Callaway was leaned on heavily throughout the tournament. She started all four games for the Lady Muckers.

Callaway went 2-2 in her games, with both losses coming against the Pahranagat Valley Panthers and both wins coming against the Indian Springs Thunderbirds.

Despite getting beaten by the Panthers in the second round of the tournament, Tonopah made it to the regional championship game with a 17-8 victory over Indian Springs in the final game of the loser’s bracket.

Savanna Muns and Hannah Dowers combined to go 12-for-25 in the regional tournament, with 13 runs batted in and they each scored four times.

As you’re reading this, the Lady Muckers are currently in Reno getting ready to play for the Nevada 1A state championship. They kick off the tournament with a game on Thursday afternoon against Wells High School at 2 p.m.

Wells defeated Tonopah in two of the three games between these teams during the regular season.

If the Lady Muckers come away with a victory in the first round, they’ll move on to play the winner of the Pahranagat Valley vs. Coleville game on Friday morning at 11 a.m.

If Tonopah can’t get a win and are sent to the loser’s bracket, they’ll play the loser of Pahranagat Valley vs. Coleville on Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
