for a full seven in­nings in each game, hit­ting and be­ing smart at the plate. When asked about their thoughts of the sea­son thus far, Wil­liams praised her team’s ef­forts, while Moon says they have a chance to “get ahead quickly” in the post­sea­son.

“I thought we worked re­ally hard to make sure that have that No. 1 spot in re­gion that will put us in a good po­si­tion for state play­offs and hope­fully push us to the sec­ond round and fur­ther to go to [the state cham­pi­onship in] Colum­bus,” said Wil­liams.

Though the Ea­gles have dom­i­nated the ma­jor­ity of their op­po­nents up to this point, they are pre­par­ing to face much tougher com­pe­ti­tion go­ing for­ward.

“I ex­pect a lot more com­pe­ti­tion than we have been see­ing,” said Co­ley Ed­wards. “I know that teams get bet­ter as the sea­son goes on, and most of the time we played the harder teams in the early sea­son. I’m ex­cited to see some real com­pe­ti­tion.”

The Re­gion 4-AAAA tour­ney be­gins Tues­day, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. against No. 2 and No. 3 seeds Wood­ward Academy and Salem, while No. 1 East­side will face No. 4 Luella at 7 p.m. at home. The losers of each game will meet Wed­nes­day, Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. in Game 3, fol­lowed by Game 4 be­tween the win­ners at 7 p.m.

The winner of Game 4 will be the No. 1 seed head­ing into the state tour­na­ment, while the loser will be No. 2.
