May 11, 2019

The Northview Lady Chiefs beat Franklin County 5-1 in the regional 1A semifinals Friday evening in Bratt.

Senior Kendall Enfinger allowed no hits in six innings. She entered the game after the first inning when started Tori Herrington came out with a pulled muscle.

“Tonight was a big win for us here at Northview. We played a really good team,” Northview Head Coach Amy Holland said. “We knew they were going to be a tough team to beat. We’ve looked at their stats. They’re no sloppy team; they’ve had a good season.”

“Our girls were ready tonight,” Holland added. “Tori got hurt there early in the game, and that’s something our out team hadn’t had to rely on somebody else. But they relied on Kendall.  Kendall Enfinger came in as a senior; she got the job done tonight. I think she pitched an awesome game. Her team said ‘hey, you pitche, we’ve got your back’ and that’s what our team did tonight.

“We Tori got hurt and I had to come in, honestly I got a little nervous at first,” Enfinger said. “But then I realized, hey I can do this and do this for her. She’s always had my back through all the years. We’ve played on the same team since we were seven years old.”

“We played more as a complete team tonight than we’ve played all year,” Holland said.

Northview, currently ranked No. 2 in the state, will travel to Wewahitchka Tuesday night in the regional final. The winner will advance to the state semifinal May 21 against either Trenton or Frostproof.

    Great team win again! Couldn’t be more proud of all the girls. Everyone rallied behind Kendall after Tori’s injury and they got the job done. You girls are making history for yourselves and your school. Take the momentum you have and ride it straight over Wewa Tuesday and on to the State Championship. Go Lady Chiefs!
