Lady Trojans to play undefeated team at state

After winning the Marion regional this past week, the Hillsboro Lady Trojans softball team is rewarded with a game against the top-ranked 3A team in the state.

Eighth-seeded Hillsboro, 13-10, will play Thomas Moor Prep-Marian (23-0) at 5 p.m. Friday at Manhattan’s Twin Oaks Complex in the first round of state action.

A victory would move the Lady Trojans into the 10 a.m. semifinal game against either No. 4 Osage City (18-3) or No. 5 Silver Lake (18-4).

The championship game is set for 1 p.m. Saturday.

The Trojans likely will use freshmen Courtney Weber or Franny Gottsch on the mound in game one.
