Toledo Boomer Softball Girls are Heading to the State Playoffs!
After an epic season where the team went 12-0 for league play and 20-4 overall, the Toledo Boomers softball team is headed to the State playoffs. The Boomers, led by head coach Howie Richards and assistant coaches DeeAnne Barnhart and the beloved Andy Vogel will be hosting the first-round game on May 23rd at home. The girls will take on Butte Falls (time TBA but most likely 4pm). The Boomers are ranked number one in the league and, as of last night they made history by cinching the number one spot in all of Oregon for 2A schools – that’s out of 39 teams!
As the number one seed going into the playoffs, all playoff games leading up to the championship will be played at home in Toledo. The first round is followed by the quarterfinals on Friday, May 25th, and the semifinals on May 29th. If Toledo makes it all the way to the State Championship game, it will be played on the Oregon State University Softball field in Corvallis on June 1st.
Making Boomer history, the girls are 24-0 for league play for the last two seasons. “This is a terrific group of girls,” said coach Richards, “not only are they skilled at softball, they play with heart every time they step on the field.”
Come out and support the Toledo Boomer girls as they battle Butte Falls in the first round of the State playoffs! First round is May 23rd in Toledo, most likely beginning at 4pm. The field is located at the Toledo Elementary School off Sturdevant road. Take note: the playoffs are an OSAA sanctioned event and OSAA does require a small admission by charged. GO BOOMERS!
