Westview edged Hamilton, 4-3 in NECC softball Tuesday night in Emma.
The Lady Warriors scored all of their runs in the second inning. Singles by Olivia Miller and Rachel Johns led off the frame. Miller would score on a hit by Sam Pfenning and Johns completed her circuit on a Michelle Mowery single. Pfenning also scored on Mowery’s safety.
Kayla Yoder capped the Westview rally by singling home Mowery.
