The Grand Ledge Varsity Softball added another piece of hardware from their already impressive 2017 season, capturing a MHSAA District Championship with a pair of wins Saturday at Okemos High School.
The Comets are already the CAAC Blue Champions after a perfect 14-0 league season.
Grand Ledge scored 34 runs on the day, beating St. Johns in the semifinal 16-3 before cruising past East Lansing 18-0 in four innings to claim the title. The district trophy is the first for the Comets since the 2011 season.
Grand Ledge is now 36-2 on the season and will take on Mattawan at Noon on Saturday at home on Saturday in the MHSAA Regional Tournament. Howell and Gull Lake will battle at 10:00 a.m. on the other side of the bracket with the championship game set for approximately 2:00 p.m. at GLHS.
Congratulations Lady Comet Softball!
