TELL CITY—Boonville, ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 3A, had to go eight innings to beat Tell City 2-0 in girls softball Thursday.
Mike Wilson, who has coached Boonville for 25 years, recently told the Evansville Courier & Press, that this is his best hitting team ever.
But Tell City pitcher Josalyn Ress, using a lot of screwballs and two-seam fastballs, shut the Pioneers out for seven innings on two hits.
The Pioneers led off the eighth with a double to the right-center-field fence and scored on a throwing error on a bunt.
