St. Elizabeth hungry for a softball title

St. Elizabeth hungry for a softball title

Reaches Final Four

October 21st, 2011 in News

St. Elizabeth is making a trip to the Class 1 Final Four for the first time since 2002 and the Lady Hornets hope to achieve the same result they did nine years ago - a Missouri state championship.

"It's just such an experience," St. Elizabeth coach Peggy Wieberg said. "My daughters have all gone and I really wanted it for these girls. They deserve it. They've worked really hard. It's been one of their goals for the season. I'm just so happy for them."

Standing in St. Elizabeth's path are the Norborne Lady Pirates, with their 25-0 record, who the Lady Hornets will face in a semifinal matchup at 11 a.m. today at Killian Sports Complex (Field No. 3) in Springfield.
