Indians shut out Amherst, Tomahawk
By Greg Seubert
It’s not easy to score on the Weyauwega-Fremont softball team.
Tomahawk and Amherst learned that lesson the hard way, as neither team could get a run on the Indians in the regional round of the WIAA state tournament.
W-F shut out Tomahawk 2-0 May 26 to win a Division 3 regional championship and opened postseason play May 23 with a 5-0 win over Amherst. The second-seeded Indians faced top-seeded Oconto May 30 on the Blue Devils’ home field.
The winner of that game will face Southern Door or Kewaunee at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 1, in a sectional final in Chilton. The sectional champion will then advance to state, scheduled for Thursday to Saturday, June 8-10, at Goodman Diamond in Madison.
