Lady Knights Fall in TAPPS Semifinals

Notre Dame's Hayli Otto threw seven innings without allowing a hit, but it wasn't enough.

Sherman Texoma Christian's Shelby Weatherly drove in the go-ahead run in the 8th inning to defeat the Lady Knights 2-1 in the TAPPS 1A/2A Semifinals Tuesday morning in Waco.

Otto, pitching her final game, struck out a dozen to finish her four-year career with 614 strikeouts. She led Notre Dame to the State Tournament all four years.

Otto also scored the lone Lady Knight run, on an error in the sixth inning, but the Lady Eagles answered as Bea Nguyen scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the same inning.

In the bottom of the eighth inning Weatherly, also Texoma Christian's pitcher, drove in Isabel Tormos for the winning run on TCS's only hit of the game.

Notre Dame finished their season 8-2, while Texoma Christian advances to the TAPPS 1A/2A title game Wednesday morning against Bellville Sacred Heart.
