Katie Carline led the Lady Trojans with on hit, a ground rule double. Community R-VI committed 14 errors in the loss.
Their 14 errors were the second highest total for a game by one team in state history. The previous top two records came in the same game between Ozark and Bolivar as Ozark had 17 errors and Bolivar had 13.
