The top-ranked team in Class 3-A has won the state softball championship. West Des Moines Dowling went up two-to-zero in the bottom of the first, but number-one North Scott came back and scored four in the sixth inning and two in the seventh to get a six-to-two win over sixth-rated Dowling in the 3-A championship game. Lindsey Schneckloth was one-for-three, contributing RBIs in the sixth and seventh innings to help lead the Lancers to their third state championship in school history. North Scott was runner-up to Muscatine in 2000 and Des Moines Lincoln in 2001. Angie Hartwig pitched the final five innings for North Scott, picking up the win and finishing her freshman season with a 16-and-0 record. North Scott finishes 55-and-one, the most wins by a Class 3-A championship team since Cedar Rapids Jefferson won the title with a 55-and-two record in 1998. Dowling finished their season with a record of 49-and-five.
