Lady Hornets fall to Troy in regular season finale.

The Wellsboro Varsity Softball team dropped their regular season finale to Troy on Wednesday, May 19.

The Lady Hornets got off to a quick start as senior Kerrah Clymer drew a lead off walk then later scored on an RBI single by senior Chelsie English to put Wellsboro up 1-0 after the 1st. Troy rallied in the top of the 2nd to take a 2-1 lead but Wellsboro battled back in the bottom of the 3rd. This time sophomore Jordyn Abernathy drew a lead off walk then scored as senior Jena Boyce grounded into a fielder's choice to tie the game up.

The run would be the Lady Hornets' last, however.

Troy added a run in the 4th to retake the lead and make it a 3-2 game, then hit back-to-back home runs in the 5th to seal the win.

Wellsboro had just 4 hits on the afternoon, one each by English, Abernathy (double), sophomore Madaline Bordas, and senior Olivia Crocco. Clymer started and threw all 7 innings, allowing 5 runs (4 earned), on 8 hits with 4 walks and 6 strikeouts.

The loss ends the Lady Hornets' regular season at 15-5 (10-5 NTL Large School Division). Wellsboro is currently the #5 seed in the District IV Class AAA field, and will resume play next week.
