Cleveland tops South Johnston to share Two Rivers 3A softball title

The Rams strung together back-to-back-to-back doubles in a two-run first inning, holding on to claim a 3-2 softball victory over county and conference rival South Johnston, beating the Trojans for the first time. The teams split their two conference games and thus shared the regular-season conference championship. South received the top seed in the inaugural conference tournament by virtue of its 9-3 win over the Rams in their tournament game at Princeton on April 16, while Cleveland will be seeded No. 2. Both got byes through the first round of the six-team event. Whichever team does better in the tournament will have the conference’s top seed for the state playoffs.
