Irmo Junior Softball Completes Historic Run at World Series as Runner-Up

Posted

The Irmo Little League softball team’s perfect run in the World Series came to an end Saturday in Kirkland, Wash.

Southeast (Irmo) was defeated 5-1 by Central (Michigan) in the final. It was the first loss in seven tournament games for Southeast (Irmo). 

Three errors hurt Southeast (Irmo) early as it turned a scoreless game after the first two innings into a 4-1 lead through four. Southeast (Irmo) scored its lone run in the bottom of the third inning on an RBI single by Stephanie Jones.

Central (Michigan) pitcher Makenzie Cammenga allowed just four hits and struck out seven. She also had an RBI double in the fourth inning in capitalizing off the third error committed by Southeast (Irmo).

The runner-up finish was the highest finish by an South Carolina team in Little League Softball World Series history. Southeast (Irmo) went 4-0 in pool play and won its quarterfinal and semifinal matchups.

The Irmo Junior Softball team was made up of players from Dutch Fork and Chapin.
