AUSTINTOWN OH- Austintown Fitch defeated Kent Roosevelt 10-0 on Wednesday to claim the Sectional Championship.  The victory, the team’s 20th of the season, moves them into the District Semifinals against Lousiville on Monday, May 16 at Fitch with first pitch scheduled at 3:30 PM.

Freshmen Sydnie Watts earned the victory in the circle, pitching a perfect game, allowing no Kent Roosevelt batter to reach base.  She struck out 11 in 5 innings as the game was shortened due to the run-rule.

Offensively, Watts drove in 3 runs in the game on a sacrifice fly, single and home run. Sophomore Ayla Ray also had a sacrifice fly to drive in a run.  Senior Maddy Taylor collected her 100th and 101st career hits during the game.

The other District Semifinal game will feature Massillon Perry and Green at 5:30 PM on Monday at Fitch.
