Kaitlyn Morrison and Katlyn Pavlick had three hits apiece to lift the South Park softball team to a 4-2 victory over Pine Grove in the rain-interrupted PIAA Class 3A championship Friday at Penn State.

Justine Dean struck out two in a complete game for South Park (21-3), which took a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Dean scored on an error and Chelsea Carozza came home on Taylor Glowa's bunt.

Pine Grove (25-3) answered with two runs in the bottom of the second inning.

The tiebreaking run came on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Charlyn Blackburn that drove in Morrison in the fifth. South Park's final run came when Pavlick scored on a passed ball in the seventh inning.
