The Lady Devils have been preparing themselves for the PIAA District 6 playoffs.

On Monday, B-A will take on Marion Center Area, as they are the second seed in the 2A field, while the Devils are in the seventh seed. The Lady Devils have an 8-11 record.

The Lady Stingers enter the game with an impressive 17-1 mark.

“I have confidence in my team and know we will all work as a team and give it our best shot, win or lose we are always a team,” said senior Jestelynn Heaton.

B-A got a boost when they had a 4-game win streak late in the season, which included a win over 3A contender Mount Union.

The Devils are hoping to make a run to win the title and capture their first District 6 crown since 2015.

The Lady Devils average 6 runs per game and have given up a total of 125 runs this season.
