Rossview held a slim 2-1 advantage through four innings but Beech scored three runs in the fifth to claim a 4-2 victory in a softball game Thursday night in Hendersonville.
The Lady Bucs, who won the state championship two years ago and took fourth place last year, limited the Lady Hawks after Rossview’s opening, two-run first inning. Ashley Graves earned the win for a Beech program that has been to the state softball tournament every year since 1996.
Ainsley Collins was hit with the loss.
