Clarke's Ashley Gibbs screams out encouragement to her teammates during a seventh-inning rally that lifted the 11th-ranked Indians to a 3-2 victory in the regional finals over No. 2 West Burlington/Notre Dame at Huston Field in Ottumwa and into the 3A State Softball Tournament. The Indians made it all the way to the state championship game on Friday, falling to fifth-ranked Bondurant-Farrar 6-3 in Fort Dodge.
