OSSIAN — Whitko’s softball team’s season came to an end Tuesday night in what Head Coach Jamilyn Pegan called, a “heart-breaker.”

“It was a heart-breaker but they went down strong,” Pegan said. “I’m proud of them. “We were one run away, one hit away, one play away.”

The Lady Wildcats fell in the fifth frame, 2-1.

After a tough start from the plate, the Lady Wildcats got on the scoreboard for the first time in the sixth inning.

“They hung in there,” Pegan said. “Especially when they were struggling with hitting in the beginning.”
