Weidner shutout sends Lady Trojans to NCHSAA 3rd Round

Sammy Weidner pitches complete game shutout as the Lady Trojans edge Panther Creek 1-0 in the NCHSAA 4A Softball Tournament. Weidner scatters six Catamount hits as Garner (20-2) manages just one Ashton Thomas run for the win. Thomas and Krissy D’Arco have the only Trojan hits but Weidner is untouchable, allowing the lone run to stand. She goes the distance in exactly 100 pitches including 69 strikes. Coach Moe Barbour’s GNRC Champions advance to the 3rd round, their first since 2012 in their second consecutive 20-win season. The 5-seed Garner squad heads to 4-seed S.Alamance Tuesday night, 7PM
