For the first time since 1998, Evans will be playing at Sulphur in the state tournament.

The No. 1 Lady Eagles defeated No. 16 Reeves 15-0 in four innings to advance to the Class C Tournament in dominating fashion.

Evans will take on No. 9 Summerfield at 5 p.m. on Thursday at Frasch Park in Sulphur in the state quarterfinal round.

Despite coming into the tournament as the No. 1 team in Class C, the Lady Eagles still had to put in the work to make it to the big show.

"I meet with my two seniors after every game, and I'm proud for them," Evans head coach Floyd Stark said. "They don't ever miss. I pulled one them to let a girl a bat for her and she took it with a smile. That's good senior leadership.

"They're really excited to go. It's been a while."

After a scoreless first inning, Evans (20-4) got its offense rolling in the second, scoring nine runs in the bottom of inning.

"They were patient at the plate, and sometimes it's hard to hit slower pitching," Stark said. "I'm proud of them."

In the third inning, Anna Martinez added to the lead with an RBI single to score Brianna Mooney, and Paige Boyd hit a fly ball to center allowing Kaitlyn Jeane to tag up and score from third base.

Leading 13-0 in the fourth inning, Paige Boyd drove in Kaitlyn Jeane and Martinez to trigger the 15-run rule as Evans cruised to the next round of the playoffs.

"I'm very excited," Martinez said. "It's the first time we get to go.

"It's been a great year for us."

Kaitlyn Jeane finished the game going 2-for-3 with three runs scored, and Martinez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBIs.

Kristi Jeane went 2-for-3 with two RBIs and pitched four innings, striking out three and allowing two hits.

Reeves made it to the second round of the playoffs despite not having a team for the last four season due to lack of participation.
