Battery Creek advanced to the Class 3A District 8 championship game with a 7-1 win over Swansea on Saturday.
Alexis Ortiz struck out 11 and allowed one run and five hits in a complete game, and Journeigh Doray was 3-for-4 with a triple, a homer, and four RBIs to lead the Dolphins.
Emily Crosby was 2-for-3 and scored three runs, and Kelsey Hill, Margaret Schubert, and Michaux Gee added two hits apiece.
The Dolphins (22-6) now wait to see who emerges from the loser’s bracket. Battery Creek will host that team Wednesday, needing to win just one of two games to advance to the Lower State tournament.
