Members of the Beloit Lady Trojans softball team have been named the Telephone and Cable Athletes of the Week.

Beloit qualified for the 3A State Softball Tournament with their championship at the TMP-Marian Regional in Hays on Tuesday.  It is the first time in program history that the Lady Trojans are headed to State.  They opened the regional tournament with a 16-1 win in 4 innings over Minneapolis in Beloit on Monday night.  Moving on to the semis in Hays on Tuesday, they opened up an early lead and cruised to a 9-1 win over Sylvan-Lucas/Lincoln to advance to the championship game.  In an exciting finale, the Lady Trojans led 4-1 after three innings over Hoisington/Central Plains.  The Lady Cardinals fought back to force a 5-5 tie and in the eighth inning, Darby Odle drove in Breezy Schroeder for the walk-off win.  The Lady Trojans are now headed to the 3A State Tournament in Emporia, which begins next Thursday, May 23 at Trusler Sports Complex.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
