Akron-Westfield Celebrates Softball Championship

AKRON, IA -

It's celebration time again tonight in Akron as the Akron-Westfield Westerners bring home yet another state softball title: their 5th in 8 years!

The girls overcame an error-plagued first part of the game and scored a 5-4 comeback win over New London in the Class 1-A final.

"It's the best feeling in the world like it's what you work for all season and then you finally get it," said A-W senior Jaclyn Smith

"And it made it even better that we didn't make it last year. We had more motivation and so when we did get it, it was amazing," added A-W senior Haley Coyle.
 
"I think it takes a few days, a few weeks to sink in, but of all the teams that we've had down there, this team is as deserving as all the others," said Westerners' Head Softball Coach Todd Colt.
