Prep softball: Seffner Christian beaten in 3A-2
LAKELAND - Seffner Christian softball team’s season ended Tuesday after a 14-0 defeat to McKeel Academy in the Class 3A-Region 2 quarterfinals. McKeel (16-4-1) scored 12 runs in the second inning to put the game out of reach for the Crusaders (13-7). The game was called in the bottom of the fourth due to the 10-run mercy rule. “We just couldn’t find the gap today,” Seffner Christian coach Jodie Stephens said. Seffner Christian lost to McKeel in the region quarterfinals last season.McKeel will play the winner of the Carrollwood Day School-Lakeland Christian quarterfinal in next week’s region semifinals.
NOTE: The Class 7A-Region 2 quarterfinal between Plant City and Bartow will be played at Plant City tonight, despite Plant City being the district runner-up.
