Cameron Cox put forth a clutch performance Monday as Hesston extended its inaugural season with a 15-4 victory at Chaparral in the first round of regionals.

All Cox did was pitch 6 2/3 innings for the win and go 5-for-5 from the plate while scoring four runs and knocking in three.

“Cameron no doubt had his best game,” said head coach Skylar Hill. “He was just laser-locked focused. He was ready to go.”

The Hesston Lady Swathers pulled off a rare postseason win by winning 6-4 at No. 2-seeded Hutchinson Trinity on Monday in the first round of the Class 3A softball regionals.

“You should really ask them because I still can’t believe it,” said head coach Alyssa Kroeker about her players. “I’m still in shock. Two times after the game, I said ‘No words’ twice. It was all them. I think they thought if this is our last game. We’re going to have fun.”

It could have been the last game for the four seniors: Alaina Dunlavy, Kaela Wade, Makaiya Russell and Kailey Jo Ince. Kroeker said she put her four best mental leaders in key positions. 

“I think Kaela pitched really well, and Alaina called the game really well,” Kroker said about her battery mates. “It was just a perfect combination honestly.”
