An outstanding season came to a disappointing end for the Lady Chargers of Choctaw County High School last week, as they fell to Choctaw Central in the third round of the MHSAA Class 3A State softball playoffs.
Choctaw County finished the year with a 17-8 record after falling to Choctaw Central 7-6 and 7-2. The Lady Warriors of Choctaw Central went on to beat St. Patrick in South State to earn a spot in the 3A State Championship Series.
Mackenzie Toombs stroked a pair of triples and scored two runs to lead Choctaw County at the plate in the first game of the series, while Shakeria Smith and Laiana Cork each picked up a single.
Kierra Fair ripped two doubles and a single to lead Choctaw County in game two, while Allie Brown had three singles and Brysa Maxwell had two. Toombs and Smith also had hits for the Lady Chargers.
