WILLIAMS - The Lady Vikings made the state playoffs by the skin of their collective teeth.

Even with two losses to St. Johns in a doubleheader last week, the Lady Vikes ended the season ranked No. 24 in power point standings, earning them the last seed in the state playoffs.

The Lady Vikes fell to St. Johns 4-9 in the first game of the doubleheader and 5-10 in the second game of the afternoon.

Head Coach Edgar Brown said the girls were competitive against St. Johns for the majority of both games but, as in many games during the season, lapses in concentration added two more losses to the Lady Vikes' record.

"It's that one inning that shakes us up," Brown said. "In the second game we also had another bad inning where they went ahead of us."

Brown went on to say the breakdowns in the Lady Vikings' offense have been difficult to overcome during the regular season.

The Lady Vikes face ninth seed Miami Friday in the first round of the state playoffs in the Valley. Brown said the Lady Vikes have a very good chance of advancing to the second round.

"We're sitting in a good spot where we can at least win two or three games," Brown said. "If we don't have those innings and get up and hit the ball and play hard we should be playing next weekend. I'm hoping."

Brown said he plans to focus on one thing this week during practice.

"Hitting," he said. "I always say if we hit and have the offense going, the defense will come because you're upbeat and you know you're doing something good with the offense. Line drives and hard hits on the ground are going to get the job done. And that's what we have to do to get the job done."
