Posted Tuesday, May 26, 2009 by Larry Hendrickson
#21 Mikala "Mik" "Mickey" King (Junior- SS/IF) had 2 put outs and 3 assists in the STAC Semi-Final game. She went 1 for 3 with a walk in the game and scored a run. Mikala followed that performance with another big day on defense and at the plate in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference Championship game. In the Championship, she fielded a hard hit ground ball to her left with runners on second and third that would have scored 2 runs if she hadn't come up with the big play.

At the plate in the Championship, she had a walk in the 4th inning that turned into a run scored and batted .333 for the second game in a row. Her 1 for 3 effort included the game winning hit. Mikala has been a team leader throughout the year and came through in the big game.

#10 Lauren "Eggy" Eggleston (Soph.- SS/UT) batted .500 in the STAC Semi-Final game going 2 for 4 with a RBI.

In the Championship game, Lauren stole a triple away from the lead off batter in the 1st inning when she sprinted to the fence and made an over the shoulder catch for the out. After batting .500 in the Semi-Finals, she followed that up by batting .667 in the Championship. In addition to her single and double in the game she reached on an error in the 7th inning.That turned into the winning run later in the inning when Mikala King had her walk off single.
