MHSAA 3A Softball State Championship: Booneville's Hallie Burns does it all in 6-1 win over Enterprise-Clarke

Burns didn't allow an earned run in seven innings in the circle and went 4-for-4 at the plate with two doubles

HATTIESBURG — Booneville pitcher Hallie Burns may be a sophomore, but she’s got as much championship experience as anyone in Class 3A.

It was all on display Tuesday afternoon, when Burns went 4-for-4 at the plate with two doubles and pitched a three-hit, one-run game in the circle to lift the Blue Devils over Enterprise-Clarke 6-1 in the opening game of the 2022 3A State Championship series at the Southern Miss Softball Complex.

“I had kind of been in a slump (at the plate),” Burns said. “I was hitting well and then we hit district play and I said ‘Whoo, my average is not where it needs to be.’”
