Heath softball team beats McKinney; moves on in playoffs

MCKINNEY-Rockwall-Heath’s Chelsey Eddy pitched a two-hit shutout and struck out eight to lead the Hawks’ sixth-ranked 4A team to a 2-0 victory over seventh-ranked McKinney last night in Game 3 of a best-of-3 Class 4A first-round playoff series. 

Heath (27-9) had lost Game 2 last Saturday, 10-0, to McKinney (25-10-1), but Sarah Deimling and Dakota Whittern each had two hits Tuesday to help the Hawks win the series, two games to one.

Heath scored both of its runs in the bottom of the fifth, on a sacrifice fly from Devin Edgemon and an RBI single from Deimling.

The Hawks will now move on to play an Area playoff game later this week.
