For today’s LEAD Beat, many people are anticipating the girl’s softball team’s WPIAL Championship game. The team played Keystone Oaks in the championship game yesterday, May 29th, but a thunderstorm cancelled the game. The game got to the 5th inning with Avonworth leading 8-0 before it got delayed to today, May 30th, at 10:30 AM where they are picking the game back up where they left off. (Update: the Avonworth girls softball team won WPIALs 12-0!)

Sophomore Jackie Lamperski says, “I had a great time at the game yesterday even though it started raining, but my best friend Leah Logan hit a home run! It sucks I can’t go today because I have finals but I wish them luck.”

The Lopes Lounge was open today, and many people came in to enjoy their weekly drink! The “open” sign in the hallway also showed support for the girls softball team!
