The right-handed hurler was nearly perfect, throwing first-pitch curveballs and keeping the Murray Spartans at bay. Buffered by a 14-run advantage, with two outs in the fifth, Eskelson arched back and unwound her 40th pitch of the game. The Murray hitter popped the fastball toward right field, where Ashley Singleton made the final out. Clutching her mitt, Eskelson motioned toward Singleton and joined her team in the dugout to ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The talk of the pressure, of how they’d handle the final two minutes of a game up and hoping to hold onto the lead. On Friday night, the Bountiful Braves handled themselves and punched their ticket to the 4A state title game Saturday against Orem.

Even when his Olympus Titans forfeited four games due to playing an ineligible player earlier in the season, dropping the No. 1 seed out of Region 7 to third place, the Titans coach believed his team had the conviction to make a postseason run. And when star Jake Lindsey broke his hand three days before the start of the state tournament, Barnes told his players “come to work every day, live every day” and avoid looking forward to next year because “things ch...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
