Lakers' season ends
Pepin managed just two hits Friday in Boscobel, Wis., as it lost to Highland 2-1 and finished its season one game short of the Division 4 state semifinals.
Highland junior pitcher Emily Wolfe wasn't overpowering -- she tallied five strikeouts -- but she kept the Lakers (21-3) off balance in the sectional finals.
"We've been a pretty dynamic hitting team all year," Lakers coach Matt Bellerive said. "(But) she was mixing her speeds and hitting her spots pretty good."
