Bittersweet end

Moore High’s state title hopes dashed in final loss

OKLAHOMA CITY — All year Jenna Lynn has been the rock upon which the Moore fastpitch team was built. Whenever the junior hurler was needed, she always came through for them.

Lynn had expected to be able to do it one more time when her Lions took on top-ranked Edmond North Monday with the 6A state championship on the line. However, for the first time this year, she was not at her best as the Huskies battered Moore 11-2 at Hall of Fame Stadium.

“We definitely didn’t have our A game,” Lynn said. “It’s a bad time to not have it. We just didn’t have it. I don’t even know what it was. I thought we were pumped up. I thought we would execute, but we just didn’t make it happen.”

Edmond North pounded out 15 hits, which is the most Lynn has allowed this season.

But it was not just Lynn who didn’t play their best in the season’s biggest game. As a team Moore accounted for only two hits against the Huskies Jordan Dixon.

“Honestly, I couldn’t tell you why we didn’t get it going,” senior Tianna Guterrez said. “Jordan is a great pitcher. I’ve played with her previously. We couldn’t hit her. We couldn’t hit her rise ball. We’ve always had a problem with that and it showed tonight.”

Yet, Moore started the game like it did have Dixon figured out. Senior Hannah Lynch came to the plate with two runners on and one out in the top of the first. Dixon threw a wild pitch and Caitlin Hall scored easily.

Dixon fanned Lynch and Kristen Prieto to shut down the rally, but the damage had been done. The Lions had an early 1-0 advantage.

Against most teams that would have been all the cushion Lynn would need.
