The Washington Demons dropped their final game at the State tournament last night 6-2 to No. 1 Clear Creek Amana.

The Demons struggled early in the game, as they were unable to put any runs together until the sixth inning off of the RBI by Chase Jaspering, but the Demons still left 10 runners on base for the game.

With the loss the Demons finished in a school history best fourth place in the State tournament and have a new trophy and banner to hang in the new school.

Head coach Angie Shrader talked after the game about how the loss hurt to take, but in the long run it was a great season for the Demons.

“You don’t like to lose your last game and it is just frustrating, we had opportunities there, and part of it is my fault when we had the bases loaded and I didn’t send [Mackenzie Knutson] home on that outfield hit to left just to try and tie up the game, I’m kind of kicking myself for that,” Shrader said. “After this, 15 minutes sets in I’m going to realize that we just finished fourth in the state and are conference champions and have a lot to be proud of, but right now it just hurts a little bit.”

The Demons finish this season 32-10.
