Bridgeport's senior class has gotten accustomed to winning the section crown. They have done it every year since they've been in high school and tonight the class made it 4/4 as the Indians beat the Lincoln Cougars, 10-7, to claim the Region II, Section 1 title.
Kate Stanley gave the Tribe the lead in the first inning with a 2-run home run and Bridgeport held a 5-0 lead after three. The Cougars answered with a 4-run bottom of the inning to pull within one run. Bridgeport scored 2 runs in the 4th and 3 in the 5th to put the game out of reach.
Bridgeport beat Lincoln, 6-0 earlier in the week, to advance in the winner's bracket of the section.
The Indians will face defending champion Herbert Hoover in the best-of-3 regional series next week.
