“Emily was in command and spun the ball well,” coach Rona Dorsey said. “She was hitting all zones and maintained good speed throughout the game.”

Chloe Corum had a solo home run to lead the offense.

On April 25, Gant had 30 strikeouts in a 3-0, 10-inning victory over Pickerington Central. It was the most strikeouts in a 10-inning game in state history, according to the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
