Rayne Gray scored on a passed ball in the top of the eighth inning to lift the Page softball team to a District 11-AAA win against Franklin Wednesday.

Page claimed a 5-4 victory. Josey Polk smacked a triple in the opening at bat of the eighth. Gray began the extra frame on second and stole third before plating the eventual game-winning run.

Polk went 4-for-4 with two RBI-singles to lead the Lady Patriots. Kaylie Adcock added two singles and two runs scored in the leadoff position, while McKayla Marlin added an RBI-single.

Franklin struck first with three runs in the bottom of the second before Page tied the game at 3-3 in the third.

Both Caroline Willis and Grace Gardner recorded multiple hits for the Lady Rebels with Willis driving in two runs and Gardner notching a double.

The game was originally scheduled to be played Monday, but was postponed to Wednesday.

With one out in the bottom of the seventh, Abby O’Reilly singled to left for Summit to drive in Haley Montgomery and pull the home team within 2-1. Summit followed with a pop out and Katherine Carter struck out the final Lady Spartan batter.
