PAXTON WON THEIR fourth softball district championship in fast-pitch since the 2006 season. with solid defense and just enough scoring to post a comfortable vic- tory to win the District 1, Class A title. Brazile faced only 22 batters in the seven inning affair, allowing only one Jaguars bat- ter to reach base as Ali Hawthorne drew a one- out walk in the second inning to become the Santa Rosa County club's only baserunner on the night. Paxton scored two runs in the bottom of the second inning as Brazile singled, moved to third on Paiyton Per- ry's double and scored on a sacrifice bunt by senior Katie Sebastian. One of Central's two er- rors in the contest later allowed Perry to score for a 2-0 advantage. Paxton added an- other run in the third inning as Sadie Var- num raced home after a single by Brazile and a throwing error for a 3-0 lead. The Bobcats added their last run of the night in the fourth as Perry singled, moved to second on Sebastian's sacrifice and scored when Cheyenne Arne struck out but raced to first base as the ball got away from the Jaguars catcher with a high throw to first helping Perry scamper across home plate. Four runs was more than Brazile needed as she and her teammates recorded the final 17 outs of the game with- out a batter reaching base.

'" Ve've worked hard on our defense and our pitching has really helped us stay in games and limit opportuni- ties. We've been able to put up enough runs to win games and now we have at least one play- off game at home. The girls have worked hard to get better and the coaching staff couldn't be more proud of them," said Bradley after the Central win. Paxton(19-4) will host Sneads(18-9) on Wednesday night with game time set for7 p.m. in a Class A, Region 1 state playoff semifinal.
