The Beaver Dam High School softball team blew by Watertown 8-1 to capture their first WIAA Division One Regional championship since 2018 on Wednesday afternoon at the BDHS Diamond.
The Golden Beavers jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first inning and never trailed in the game. Audriana Edwards paced the balanced Golden Beaver attack going 3×4 with a double and a pair of RBI. Gracie Halfman also collected a pair of hits, drove in one and scored a run. Olivia DiStefano and Riley Czarnecki also doubled in the win.
Edwards and Gabby Fakes combined to strike out 10 in the circle and give up just one run on eight hits.
Sydney Linskens went 3×3 and Samantha Suski drove in the Goslings only run to lead the Watertown offense. The Goslings season ends at 12-10.
Beaver Dam (17-3) will host Slinger on Monday at 5pm in a WIAA Division One Sectional Semifinal. You can watch that game on DailyDodge TV.
