The Cubs are headed back to the North Coast Section Division-VI championships, in both baseball and softball.
On Wednesday evening, both South Fork teams took care of business in their respective semifinals at home, with each advancing to this weekend’s championship games for the second straight year.
Both also are seeded No. 1 in their brackets, giving them the added advantage of a home game for the championship on Saturday.
In baseball, South Fork defeated San Francisco Waldorf 7-1, improving to 14-6 and setting up a championship showdown against No. 2 seed Credo.
In softball, the Cubs took care of No. 4 Emery 13-3 and appear to be peaking at an opportune time.
“I’m just really proud of the girls,” head coach Lisa Todd said. “They’re really working together and it’s starting to tell.”
Joslin Todd struck out nine and walked one for the win in the circle and got plenty of offensive support.
Kylie Savio led the way at the plate, finishing 3-for-3 with a triple and a double, while Joslin Todd was 2-for-5 with an inside-the-park home run and a triple.
Regina Saloman, Jasmine Todd and Lily Carr each also had two hits in the win, including a triple by Saloman and a double by Carr.
Overall it was a composed performance by the Cubs.
“We were patient on the ball and it was one of our better days,” Lisa Todd said.
With the win, the Cubs improved to 15-9 and they will now play Laytonville for the section title.
“We’ve had a long season with a lot to learn,” the head coach added. “But we’re actually putting everything together and looking good right now.”
