By CHARLEY PREUSSER

The Seneca softball team won the WIAA Division 5 Sectional Championship held in Bangor on Wednesday, June 23 with 3-2 victory over Independence-Gilmanton.

Seneca got off to a slow start and spotted Independence-Gilmanton two runs in the second inning–fueled by some errors and misplayed balls. The first run came on a passed ball and the second run scored when the Seneca third baseman Aubrey Wallin tried to throw a runner out at home instead of taking the third out by taking the runner going to first.
