Western Boone dropped out of the Southmont sectional on Wednesday and ended their season with a 10-6 loss to Danville in semifinal action.

Danville never gave the Stars much of a chance and turned the tables on WeBo after the Stars swept the Warriors in the regular season series last week.

Danville jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and extended its lead further in the second inning, scoring four more runs for a 6-0 advantage over WeBo.

Danville knocked 13 base hits against the Stars.

“This was the first time that they hit better than us,” Western Boone coach Beth Dohogne said. “

Western Boone didn’t score its first run until the third inning. Krystal White scored off of junior Stephanie Miller’s RBI and Makenzie Benson later stole home on a Danville error.

Danville had six errors on Wednesday. Western Boone only committed three.

Junior Cari Clanton hit in Miller, and Jennifer Biesecker later scored that inning, cutting the deficit to 8-4 in the third.

WeBo scored its final two runs in the seventh inning on a triple by Clanton.

Western Boone had 10 hits against the Warriors on Wednesday. White and Biesecker both went 3-for-4 while Clanton went 2-for-4 with three RBIs.

Sydney Wiley started on the mound for the Stars, pitching only two innings with a strikeout and a walk.

Christin McFadden came in and pitched the final five innings with three strikeouts and two walks.

“They only had three walks total together,” Dohogne said. “We made a big improvement on that over the year. We were struggling with that and it’s just gotten better and better and better.”

Dohogne said that Western Boone has been in the sectional final game every year for the past four out of five years, which is one of the toughest reasons for losing on Tuesday.

“Western Boone is used to being in the final of the sectional,” Dohogne said. “That’s tough not to be in there. I would have liked to have gotten a shot at Crawfordsville.”

Crawfordsville, who defeated both Southmont and North Montgomery throughout the postseason tournament, will compete tonight with Danville for the sectional title at 7 p.m. at Southmont.
