Baseball: Edmondson Slams SHS into Regional Finals
Senior Elias Edmondson smaked a walk-off grand slam to give the Golden Warriors a come-from-behind win over Rochelle in the semifinals of the Rochelle 3A Regional Thursday.
Sterling (21-11) trailed 7-6 entering the bottom of the seventh, but tied the game on Cooper Willman's bloop single into centerfield, which set the stage for Edmondson's heroics. (Note: while rounding the bases on the grand slam, Edmondson passed the previous runner between 1st and 2nd base and was called out. Edmondson was officially credited with a 3-run single.)
The Golden Warriors now take on Stillman Valley (13-18) for the regional championship Saturday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. back in Rochelle.
