BLANCHESTER — Williamsburg maintained its hopes of an league championship with an 8-3 win over Blanchester Wednesday night.

The SBAAC National Division loss puts BHS at 2-12, 1-6.

Williamsburg is 9-5 in all games and 6-2 in the division. Clermont Northeastern leads the National at 6-1.

“We just fell too far behind to overcome,” BHS manager Jamey Grogg said. “The girls battled until the final out. We had a lot of quality at-bats and hit the ball hard several times, but to their credit Williamsburg made several nice plays on defense to take away hits.”
