  • Lady Rams set for title game

    ALTAMONT – Shaunna Rainey stood on the back of the bench in the seventh inning of Tuesday’s regional semifinal game, showering her teammates with encouragement from the perch she called her “rally spot.”

    The junior blasted a triple to center field to cap a six-run inning that gave the second-seeded Lady Rams a 10-5 comeback win against No. 3 St. Anthony and a spot in Saturday’s championship game against Altamont.
