Holton’s softball team played a challenging schedule and the Red Devils did so with this time of the season in mind.

It’s MHSAA state tournament time and they appear primed to make a run.

Division 4 fifth-ranked Holton began its tourney journey in dominating fashion Friday, rolling past host Marion 20-1 in three innings in the district semifinals before diming White Cloud 10-0 in five innings in the district finals.

Next up for the Red Devils (25-12-1) is the regional tournament next Saturday (June 8) at Frankfort. They’ll face the winner of the Bellaire district, which will wrap up today (June 1).

Holton wasted little time in its first game Friday, scoring four runs in the first inning, 12 in the second, and four in the third to overwhelm Marion. Kenzie Greene picked up the win in the pitcher’s circle, allowing one unearned run on three hits with five strikeouts and one walk. She helped her own cause with a double, home run, and five RBIs. Ryann Robins was 3-for-3 with a double and triple, Aubrey Goyings and Grace Thompsen were both 2-for-3 with a double, while Lexi Bartolameolli also doubled.

In the district championship game, Robins pitched a no-hitter with nine strikeouts and two walks. She also hit a home run to help her own cause. Meanwhile, Abbie Fowler went 3-for-4 with three triples, Thompsen was 2-for-3, and Chloe McKee went 2-for-2. Greene, Goyings, and Sydney McCormick also had hits for the Red Devils.
