[VIDEO] Central Softball Clinches Back to Back District Crowns

Manheim Central beats Greencastle-Antrim 3-2 to clinch back to back District 3 AAA titles. 

The Manheim Central softball team continues on its winning run; successfully defending its district 3 AAA title. The Barons bringing home the gold with 3-2 win over Greencastle-Antrim in the championship game at Lebanon Valley College.

Central went up 2-0 following an Ali Morton solo homerun in the bottom of the 1st, but a couple of errors later in the fourth inning allowed the Blue Devils to tie hings up at 2 apiece.

But Manheim magic returned to LVC. Rachel Clippinger hits a single up the middle right off the pitcher, which sends in Aerika High for the go ahead run in the bottom of the 6th. And the Lady Barons keep their composure in the 7th to bring home the win. Sara McKee throws a strike to ice the game for Manheim.

This is the third title Central has won this season - the Barons winning the Section 3 title and the L-L League championship this spring.

The video below includes game highlights as well as reaction from left fielder, Brittiny Griffith, right fielder, Ali Morton, pitcher, Sara McKee, and Central head coach Steven Ginder.
