  • Smoky Valley picked up a road split with Haven Thursday night, winning the Central Kansas League in the process.
    The Vikings took game one 6-2 and fell in game two 10-1.
    Senior ace Eryn Stockman was the winning and losing pitcher of record for Smoky Valley (15-5, 14-4 CKL), striking out seven batters in game one and only giving up one earned run in the process.
    Smoky Valley jumped out to a 1-0 lead after the second inning and added three in the third and two in the sixth to cement the win.
    Senior Emily Norberg drove in two runs, while Hannah McBride added a double.
    Haven came out with revenge on the mind in game two, scoring one in the first and four in the second.
    Smoky Valley’s one run came in the third off the bat of Norberg. Senior Maddie Klotzbach had a triple to help the Viking cause.
    The CKL title win was the first for the Smoky Valley softball program in 15 years.
    The Vikings will host a Class 4A regional beginning Monday at Bethany College. Smoky Valley will face No. 6 seed Abilene at 6:30 p.m.
