The North Adams girls blanked Whiteoak 13-0 in the recent tourney championship game, with pitcher Carlee Garrison striking out 13 of 16 Whiteoak hitters and going 2 for 2 at the plate with a double and a triple.
The Lady Devils’ offense also got a 3 for 3 day out of sluggers Katelynn Boerger, Karis Tumbleson, and Mia Scales, with Tumbleson blasting a home run and Scales a triple.
Also contributing to the big North Adams win were Jayla Barnett and McKenna Shelton both going 2 for 3.
