5-22-08 - An incident in the regional semifinals could jeopardize the S&S Lady Rams chances of reaching the state tournament. S&S will play tonight's game against Aubrey without two of their best players.
According to KXII sources, pitcher Angela White and catcher Nikki Jones have been suspended for tonight's game after the incident in the regional semifinals. After getting several questionable calls in game two of that series, White allegedly threw a pitch that was intended to hit the umpire, and the catcher made little effort to stop it. After being hit by the pitch, the umpire ejected both players.
Both players are expected to be available for game two on Saturday. S&S Superintedent Robert Steeber would only say, "to protect our players and school, I have no comment."
