The Evans Lady Eagles captured a share of the District 3-C softball title Tuesday with a win over Hornbeck, 5-0.

EVANS - In order to clinch no worse than a share of a district title, the Evans Lady Eagles needed to do just one thing ... win.

Mission accomplished.

Madi Gollihugh had three hits, while Sadie Jeane struck out 13 in the Lady Eagles' 5-0 victory Tuesday over the Hornbeck Lady Hornets.

The Lady Eagles (11-9, 9-1) had a chance to claim the outright league title, had Ebarb lost to Hicks. However, Ebarb edged the Lady Pirates, 3-2, to pick up a share of the crown as well.

Evans took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second and used a two-run fifth and a single run in the sixth to account for the margin of victory.

Jeane surrendered only three hits en route to fanning 13 Lady Hornets. She also contributed a hit and RBI in the win.

Gollihugh had a triple among her three hits and scored twice. Libby Craft added two hits and a run scored, while Chevy Beason tripled, drove in a run and scored once.

Abby Nicholas had one of the three hits for Hornbeck as she suffered the loss in the circle. Hannah Mitchell and Madison Behan recorded a triple and double, respectively, but did not score.
