The Lake View High School Wild Gators hosted the Silver Foxes of Lamar High School Friday night in region softball action with the Gators getting the 10-0 win in five innings. Wild Gator Coach Brandi Huggins has her team undefeated in region play with the only regular season loss coming from 3A Dillon High by one run in extra innings.

The Wild Gators held the 3-0 lead through a scoreless third inning. A big at-bat fourth inning produced four runs for the Wild Gators increasing their lead to 7-0. The game was called in the bottom of the fifth on the mercy rule when the Gators added three runs giving them a 10-0 win. On the mound for the Wild Gators, Raven Locklear pitched a five-inning shut-out, produced seven strikeouts, no walked batters, and allowed three hits and no runs for the win. On the mound for Lamar, Heidi Anderson pitched ½-inning and allowed three hits and two runs scored in the loss. Tatum Weaver pitched 4 and ½ innings and allowed four hits and eight runs scored.
