Washburn Rural wins 6A state softball title

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – The Washburn Rural Lady Blues captured the 6A state softball title in convincing fashion by taking down previously-unbeaten Olathe East on Friday night.

Rural jumped out to an 8-0 lead after the 1st inning and cruised to a 9-2 victory to win their first state championship since 2008.

Senior pitcher Kelsee Henry picked up the win, and freshman Madison Roth closed out the game by retiring the side in the bottom of the 7th.
