May 11, 2010|By From Sun staff reports

Howard County's two best softball teams needed extra innings to decide the county champion, and Glenelg pitcher Casey Schmidt hit the go-ahead homer in the top of the eighth to lift the No. 6 Gladiators over host Howard, 6-3.

Schmidt homered twice for Glenelg (17-2) in her four at-bats and also pitched well, striking out six in four innings.

Trailing 3-0 and held in check for six innings, the Lions (16-2) scored three times in the bottom of the seventh to tie it but could not complete the comeback.

No. 10 Glen Burnie 11, Old Mill 5: Melanie Slowinski was stellar on the mound and at the plate for the host Gophers (11-5), striking out eight batters while allowing just two hits and collecting three hits of her own, including a homer.
