Local softball teams prevail in District contests

American shutout Krop, 15-0, in the district semifinal, as Ashley Alfonso pitched a no hitter and recorded seven strikeouts.

Also, Monsignor Edward Pace’s softball team won the the 15-5A District title with a 15-1 victory over Mater Lakes Academy, and the two rivals might meet in the regional playoffs. 

Meanwhile, Barbara Goleman’s softball team lost to Miami Springs in the 15-6A District championship game but will play in the regional since the Gators are district runner-ups.

Goleman edged Hialeah Miami Lakes, 3-2, in the district semifinal, making a clean sweep over the Trojans for the season and advanced to the title game against Miami Springs. 

Goleman was led by Aaliyah Borno, Adriana Bueno, Alicia Urrutia, Kayla Morales and Megan Perez.

According to MaxPreps, the HML Trojans finished the season 10-4 and placed third in the district.

Hialeah Miami Lakes was led by Lailah Baez, Kiara Guzman, Karina London and Carmen Pardo.
