BELMONT -- In the driver’s seat following a 4-3 win over Mooreville last week, the Kossuth Lady Aggies arrived at their destination. Kossuth defended its Division 1-3A Fast-Pitch Softball title with a 2-0 win at Belmont on Tuesday. Kossuth (12-11, 7-1) will receive an opening-round bye and begin second round Class 3A play on Tuesday. There’s a little icing on the cake for Kossuth’s third league title in four years. “Mooreville thought they had it won when they got moved into our division,” said KHS Head Coach Steve Lyles. The Lady Troopers, which eliminated Kossuth in last year’s quarterfinal round, and Lady Aggies posted identical 7-1 marks in league play. The two split their home-and-home series, with Kossuth earning the nod via run differential. Carleigh Mills notched her sixth win in 10 decisions, tossing a two-hit shut out and facing just 23 batters -- two over the minimum. It was her third shutout in four games. Mills, who gave up singles in the first and sixth innings, set down eight batters on strikes, giving the junior 98 strikeouts in 74 1/3 innings of work. Madison Switcher, who had half of Kossuth’s four hits, scored what to be the deciding run in the first. Switcher led of the game with a single, moved to second on Parrish Tice’s bunt then scored on an error. Kossuth used a two-out rally in the third to double its advantage. Tice and Briana Bryan drew consecutive walks before Mills her own cause with an run-scoring single to right. Belmont’s last baserunner came on a two-out single in the sixth. Mills pitched out of damage, and lowered her season ERA to 1.41. “Only two balls left the infield against her,” said Lyles. Kossuth will be idle until the second round of the playoffs. The Lady Aggies will face the best-of-3 winner between the runner-up from Division 2-3A and the No. 3 team from Division 4. Mooreville is the No. 2 seed from 1-3A, while Booneville claimed the third and final spot. Kossuth 2, Belmont 0 Kossuth 101 000 0 -- 2 4 1 Belmont 000 000 0 -- 0 2 1 WP: Carleigh Mills (6-4).
