Lady Maroons Go For Regional Title Tonight in Rochester

The Clinton Lady Maroons will go for a 3A Regional title tonight when they take on Regional host, Rochester at 4:30 pm this afternoon is girls softball action. 


The Lady Maroons are back in a Regional title game for the third time in four years but have come up empty each time. 


The Lady Maroons' Mac Armstrong has been strong in circle. She twirled a shutout against Springfield Wednesday afternoon and allowed a run in four innings Monday in an 18-1 win over Springfield Lanphier.


Tonight, Rochester poses a new challenge. At 25-3 overall, the Lady Rockets lost their three games in Central State Eight Conference play and came in second in the conference to Normal U-High. The Lady Rockets have also only allowed 36 runs all season and have won 6 in a row, the latest a 10-0 win over Springfield Southeast Tuesday in Regional action.


The winner of tonight's game plays Tuesday at Clinton High School in Sectional action against the winner of tomorrow's matchup between Mt. Zion and Paris. 


Tonight's game's first pitch is 4:30 pm from Rochester. Hear the action on The Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM/106.5 WHOW, online at dewittdailynews.com, at Amazon Alexa and at the WHOW mobile app.
