LORETTO, Pa. – With one swing of the bat, Clearfield sophomore Ruby Singleton snapped Beaver’s 42-game wiining streak and lifted the Lady Bison into the PIAA 4A title game for the first time in program history with a 2-1 win.
With two outs in the seventh, Alexis Benton was hit by a pitch from Payton List and Alexis Cole looped a single to right. That turned the lineup over and Emma Hipps was intentionally walked, setting the stage for Singleton, who laced a single for the win.
