Skyline advances to championship round, needs one win to capture first state title

 OXFORD – Skyline High School has never won an AHSAA softball state championship, but the Vikings are only one victory away after Tuesday’s action at the 2024 Class 1A state tournament at Choccolocco Park.
    The top-ranked Vikings (32-12) held on for a 4-2 victory over Leroy in the winners bracket final, recording the final out with the tying run at the plate. Skyline led 4-0 after six and half innings before the Bears rallied.

    Skyline’s Brook Cloud drove in two runs and finished 2-for-3 at the plate. The junior singled in the third inning and added a two-run double in the seventh to give Skyline two runs that ultimately proved to be the difference in the game.
    Skyline pitchers Brinna Wilson and Olivia Treece split time in the circle to limit Leroy to two runs off two hits.
    Skyline opened the two-day, double-elimination tournament with a 9-1 victory over Verbena and then earned a 10-0 victory over defending champion Brantley.
    Four teams remain alive – Hackleburg, which eliminated Brantley, as well as Waterloo, Leroy and Skyline. Waterloo and Hackleburg are scheduled to play Wednesday at 10:45 a.m., and the winner plays Leroy. The winner of that game then moves into the championship round against Skyline and must defeat the Vikings twice to win the 1A title.

      The championship round is scheduled to start Wednesday at 5 p.m.
