(ABC 6 News) - The Rochester Lourdes Eagles Softball team has won their first state title in program history in their state tournament debut.
The second-seed Eagles took on the top-seed Norwood-Young America Raiders on Friday afternoon at Caswell Park for the Class AA state title. Lourdes knew what they had to do and they upset the Raiders, winning 10-1.
“They were ready to go today, we put a good game plan in front of them and it all came down to Anna," Eagles head coach Becky Macken said. "She had her off-speed working really really well. We weren’t going to beat them unless we kept them guessing. She kept them guessing and she pitched a gem.”
Taylor pitched a complete game after pitching in the Class AA quarterfinals against Annandale (8-6) and the Class AA semifinals against Pipestone Area (2-1) on Thursday.
