More than once during the C-2 District softball tourney last week at Timmermann Park in West Point, it appeared that Guardian Angels Central Catholic could possibly have to bank on drawing one of two wildcard spots.
But ‘more than once,’ GACC showed its resiliency and delivered big plays in clutch moments.
As a result, GACC captured the C-2 District title and qualified for the Class C state softball tournament for an eighth consecutive year.
“It’s just really rewarding to see the kids play like they are right now. The excitement of winning this district was really special,” Bluejay head coach Allan Kreikemeier said. “I’m just super proud of these girls, and what they accomplished.”
This year’s state berth for GACC was extra special for a lot of reasons.
One of the biggest reasons was how they battled. After losing to Arlington to open the day on Friday, the Bluejays took the long road to the district title. And did so with many underclassmen playing key roles.
