The Aucilla Christian Academy Lady Warriors went into the State Championship Final last Thursday, May 8, against defending State Champions.
 Canterbury School of Florida (2011 and 2013) and Aucilla was skimmed for a 1-0 loss, to wrap up the season as the State Runner-Up.
“We played a really great game,” said ACA Athletic Director Kevin Smith. “They (Canterbury) got a lucky hit in the top of the sixth inning. Natalie (Sorensen) attempted a diving catch, but just barely missed the ball and it rolled to the fence for Canterbury’s run. At the bottom of the sixth, we had two on and two outs. We tried our best, but just couldn’t get the ball into the field. Their (Canterbury) pitcher is very, very good.
“We are very proud of the girls, for their attitude and demeanor throughout the course of the tournament. They are going back to Aucilla as winners. This is the first year ever that Aucilla has gone to the State Final and finished as the State Runner-Up,” said Smith.
“This was only the second time ever that any Aucilla Christian Academy team had made it to the State Championship Final. The only other team to make it to the State Championship Final was the ACA Warriors baseball team in 1981, with then pitcher Bobby Thigpen on the mound. The Warriors finished as the State Runner-Up” Smith concluded.
