Lone Oak softball sets sights on state championship

PADUCAH, KY-- There is a certain swagger among Lone Oak softball players just three days before the state tournament.

"It feels good to go back and prove to everybody that last year wasn't a fluke," said senior utility player Sarah Kreuter. "And to show that we didn't just squeak by, and that we really are a talented team that can go back and do the same thing we did last year."

To do that, their plan is to start out with back to back wins.

"Same goal this year as last," said Amy Sorensen, a senior infielder for Lone Oak. "Go up there, win two games. As long as we're playing the way we're playing, I'm not worried about anything up there."

But the Flash hope the ending is a little different this season.

"Now that we've got a taste of state, we're wanting to come back with the ring," Sorensen admitted.

"It would be really great to come home with that," said head coach David Scheer. "I'm not going to lie about it. But you know, it's just like last year, we're in a tough bracket again."

Scheer adds this trip to state is a little more important, because it's the last time they'll be representing Lone Oak before the consolidation.
