Trojan softball season ends in heartbreaking fashion

Troy, Mo. - It took two days, but in the end, Troy Buchanan’s Class 5 softball state title run came to a close.

After 11 innings on Oct. 21, the Trojans battled to a 2-2 tie with Francis Howell Central, only to have the contest suspended due to darkness. When the game was picked up the following day, the Spartans quickly walked off in the bottom of the 12th inning to end the Trojans’ season, 3-2.

Troy Buchanan closed out the 2021 campaign with a 21-10-1 record.
