Conley Baseball, Softball Advance To State Finals

The D.H. Conley baseball and softball teams both advanced to the state finals after their regional wins Saturday.

The Viking baseball squad lost to Orange 1-0 in game two of the series Saturday. The Panthers then opened up a 2-0 lead in the decisive game three before Conley came back to tie and eventually clinch the series with a 6-3 victory.

The matchup wasn't nearly as close on the softball side. The Vikings only needed two games to dispatch Eastern Alamance. Conley won both games via shutout: 4-0 Friday and 5-0 Saturday.
