Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Top-ranked Chattanooga State is headed to the national junior college softball tournament at St. George, Utah, after defeating Walters State 2-0 on Wednesday afternoon and capture the Region VII tournament on its home field.

The national tournament will be May 17-19.

Sophomore centerfielder Shelby Johnson had a two-run home run in the top of the third, and that was the only scoring of the title game.

Lady Tiger ace Ashley Czechner fired the shutout.

Third baseman MeQuilla Franklin scored ahead of Johnson after getting a single.

Chattanooga State put together three singles in the fourth, but could not get another run across.

Walters State got runners on second and third with one out in the fourth, but Czechner got a strikeout and a popup.
