CANFIELD OH- Columbiana came out swinging in their district semifinal, cruising to a 7-1 win over Rootstown and earning their spot in the championship game.

Ava Davanzo was on fire, bagging a couple of hits and driving in two runs, while Maryn Hepler made sure even her outs were memorable, smashing the ball around the park and scoring twice. Caitlynn Pleska added her own flair with a homer and an RBI.
