Ridge View softball team qualifies for state tournament


Back-to-back home runs and a one hit pitching effort helped the Ridge View softball team advance to the class 2A state softball tournament via a 5-0 decision over West Lyon in a regional final played in Inwood July 20.
A three-run homer by Emma Vohs and a solo shot by Addison Schmidt in the fifth inning powered the Raptor offense. Raptor pitcher Addison Schmidt limited West Lyon to one hit.
Ridge View, 11-8, opened the state tournament Tuesday, July 28, against North Linn, ranked first in the state in class 2A, at Harlan Rodgers Sports Complex north of Fort Dodge. The winner will play again Wednesday, July 29, in the semifinal at a time to be determined. The loser goes home.
