Erin Hocker appeared in this year's Region XI Tournament four times going 3-1. Throughout those four appearances, she pitched 22 innings, striking out 23 batters, and only giving up six runs. Hocker threw two shutouts to help send the Eagles to the District H Championship. In a must-win game, she tossed a shutout against NIACC, giving up two hits and striking out seven. She then faced the Trojans again in a winner-take-all game to end the tournament. She blanked them again, this time throwing a one-hitter and striking out five. She looks to continue her against Dawson (Mont.) in the District H Championship in Montana.

Randyn Carter proved that when it comes to hitting she knows a thing or two about it. Carter was solid this past weekend going 6 for 8 with two doubles, one home run, and bringing in five Eagle teammates. She drew one walk and was a menace on the bases stealing successfully twice, helping Kirkwood to an eventual Region XI-B Championship. The Eagles will head the District H Championship series against the Dawson Buccaneers in Glendive, Mont.
