COLUMBIA — The Hickman softball team beat New Franklin 16-0 on Thursday in the Kewpies' final home game of the season.

The game was shortened to three innings because of the Missouri State High School Activities Association's run rule.

"We played Hickman softball today," Kewpies senior Sydney Washington said. "We came ready to show we mean business."

Washington singled and scored in the first inning and hit a solo home run in the second inning.

"Getting ready for the district tournament, we're really focused and there will be no messing around," said Nell Chronister, the only other Kewpies senior, who had a pair of hits and two runs in Thursday's game. 

The Kewpies (15-7) play Friday at Troy, then Saturday at Fort Zumwalt South before beginning the district tournament Wednesday at Rock Bridge.

Supervising editor is Grant Hodder.
