The Class 3A 7th-ranked West Delaware Softball team earned a split in a WaMaC conference doubleheader in Solon last night against the 3A 3rd-rated team. The Hawks jumped on the board early in game 1 with Solon coming back later in the game forcing extra innings. The game ended in the bottom of the ninth on a close play at first base with Solon winning 4-3. Game 2 was scoreless until the 3rd when the Hawks scored 3 and went on to win 4-1. It was the first win for the Hawks against Solon at their place since June 20th of 2011. The Hawks return to play tonight at home against Marion for a varsity doubleheader beginning at 6pm.
