The Boonville softball team survived thunderstorms, a two and a half hour lightning delay and Guerin Catholic to bring the state championship home Friday night, 1-0.

Senior pitcher Ariel Thomasson got out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning unscathed, then tossed a complete game shutout.

Still scoreless in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Pioneers got a lead-off triple from senior catcher Jayce Purdy. The very next batter, Randy Jo Pryor laid down a picture-perfect squeeze bunt, bringing in Purdy for the game winner.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
