Culver Academy Wins Softball Sectional Championship

When pitcher Jackie Lawrence graduated, many didn't give Culver Academy a chance for the 2007 season.

In fact, the team didn't have a pitcher until January.

That pitcher turned out to be Holly Johnson.

Tonight, the junior threw a complete-game shutout, leading Culver Academy to the 3A sectional championship over New Prairie 1-0.

The game was a defensive battle throughout with each team making fabulous plays.

The game remained scoreless until the 6th. With two away, Eagles' senior Alexandria Harper hit a grounder to short. Cougar shortstop Victoria Cuson, who was fantastic throughout the game, threw the ball into the dirt at first. Emma Clark hustled around 3rd and scored the game's only run.

In the 7th, the Eagles closed things out and won their 2nd sectional championship in 3 years.
