|Less than 48 hours after a disappointing start to their season, the Milan Lady Wildcats won the Putnam County Tournament on Saturday.|
The tournament featured a combination of varsity and JV teams from throughout northeast Missouri. Milan beat Newtown-Harris 11-3, the Kirksville JV 5-4, and Green City 11-1 (in the championship game).
Over three games of work, Milan freshman pitcher Kenna Michael gave up just a total of 11 hits. The Lady 'Cats offense racked up 34 hits over the three games. Head Coach Nathan Dodson called Saturday "a great opportunity for a couple of my starters to gain confidence in key positions".
Milan will host Marceline on TUESDAY night at 5 o'clock at Legion Field.

Brookfield, in the quarterfinals, walloped Marshall by a final score of 11-2. In the semifinals, the Lady 'Dogs disposed of Clark County 10-4, before shutting out Knox County in the title game by a score of 5-0.
