Zanesville's Morgan Smith and Ashonda Underwood teamed up with John Glenn's Mackenzie Prater to represent the East District in the 2014 Ohio Underclass Fastpitch Tournament at Pickerington High School Central.
The East team was hoping to rebound with a win against the Northwest after falling, 6-2, to the Southeast, but came up short. The Northwest scored six runs in the first inning en route to a 9-4 victory.
Kierstyn Czuchran of Buckeye Local provided a bright spot for the East in the 5th, launching a two-run bomb to cut the deficit to six.
The East finished the day with an 8-0 loss to the Central District. Two more games await them tomorrow at 10 a.m. and noon. Crooksville's Keely Thomas, who is on the Southeast team, will also play two final games at the same times.
