The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School softball team won the District 4-1A tournament last week in Liberty County, beating South Walton 8-2 in the title game.

The Lady Tiger Sharks will host Chipley 7 p.m. ET Tuesday in the Region 2-1A semifinal.

Port St. Joe jumped on the host Liberty County Lady Bulldogs to open the tournament with a 10-0 victory in a game shortened to five innings under the mercy rule.

Stephanie Brinkmeier earned the win on the mound, facing just 20 batters and allowing three hits while striking out five and walking none. It was Brinkmeier’s 15th win.

Hayley Wood and Shannon Pridgeon paced the Port St. Joe attack with two hits each, including a home run and three RBIs from Wood.

Pridgeon also drove in three.

Kelsey Miles, Christian Laine, Ashley Babcock, Haleigh Keels and Addison Rice each had hit.
