WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Pioneer's run at a second straight state softball title ended in the tournament's final game Saturday when Indianapolis Lutheran topped the Panthers 4-1 in the class A state title game.

Saturday's final featured excellent starting pitching. Pioneer freshman Hayley Cripe allowed three earned runs in seven innings, including 10 strikeouts. Her counterpart Kaylee Gregory went five and two thirds innings with just one earned run and seven strikeouts.

The Saints broke the game open in the top of the seventh inning. Rylee Morris delivered a bases loaded hit that scored two, and a batter later Quinn Johnson grounded a ball up the middle, tacking on the fourth and final run.

Saturday's championship was Indianapolis Lutheran's third program state title, the Saints finish 2019 with a 21-7-1 record. The Panthers finish their year 31-3.
