Bailey Correia hit her 13th home run of the year, but it wasn’t enough as the Elliot Christian softball team fell 14-4 to Big Valley Christian in a Central California Athletic Alliance tiebreaker game at the Eagles’ field on Wednesday.
The two teams tied for third place in the CCAA at 3-5. Big Valley’s win means it’s headed into the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs, while Elliot stays home.
Correia finished 3-for-3 with the home run and two doubles, while Karahgan Mayer had a double, and Katie Pettersen and Sammie Tucker had singles.
Correia’s 13 homers is second in school history — Kaila Shull had 17 in 2006 before heading to play at UCLA. Shull is also third on Elliot’s single-season home run list, and Bradi Kooyman is fourth with eight.
