Lady Chiefs host regional final

Shiocton hurler Sydney Wilcox threw a 1-hitter as the Lady Chiefs would score in every inning in their WIAA Division 4 regional playoff game against Crandon on Thursday, May 25.
Host Shiocton would score a run in the first and second innings and two in the third and fourth for a 6-0 lead.
Sloppy defense by the Chiefs would lead to a Crandon run in the fifth inning only to see Shiocton add five runs of their own to end the game 11-1 by 10-run rule.
With the win, Shiocton earned a berth in the regional final against conference rival Iola- Scandinavia. The Thunderbirds split the season series with both teams winning by one run. Iola-Scandinavia, seeded No. 4, defeated No. 5 seed Phelps/Three Lakes 1-0 in eight innings on Wednesday, May 24.
The winner advances to the Division 4 sectionals on May 30 with the opponent and game location to be determined.
