SOUTHFIELD — In its first season as a varsity program, the Wixom St. Catherine softball team is district champs.
The Siena Stars beat Royal Oak Shrine 4-1 May 31 at Southfield Christian for the Division 4 district crown.
“I’m shocked, well, really not shocked, but these girls just worked really hard,” St. Catherine coach Bob Green said.
Junior pitcher Mary Green led the way from the circle, allowing one run, while tallying nine strikeouts.
“We knew it was going to be very tough and that we couldn’t make a mistake,” Shrine coach Rick Steinmetz said. “We just couldn’t catch up to the pitching.”
Offensively, sophomore Sarah Choate led the way for the Siena Stars, with a double, triple, a run and an RBI.
In the semifinals, St. Catherine beat Southfield Christian 13-3 in five innings and Shrine beat Novi Franklin Road 11-1 in five innings.
Up next, St. Catherine plays the winner of the Sterling Heights Parkway Christian district at 12 p.m. June 8 at Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett.
