Bumgardner fires 2-hitter to close regular season

Adams Central's Josie Bumgardner pitches against Friend
Monday night at Smith Softball Complex.

To say that Adams Central pitcher Josie Bumgardner ended the regular season on a high note is an understatement.

After Bumgardner set a school record with 17 strikeouts in a 6-0 victory Thursday over Southern Valley/Alma, the Patriots' ace struck out 13 in the Patriots' 4-1 victory over Friend in the regular season finale.

"Day to day, we've been able to count on her," said Adams Central head coach Chelsey Jacobitz. "If we can keep her number count down, the healthier she will stay and the fresher we can keep her for districts."
