MOORESVILLE -- The Lady Blue Devils avenged their only loss of the season by defeating Lake Norman 4-2 on May 10 in the second round of the 4A state playoffs. Lake Norman -- the No. 15 seed in the 4A West bracket -- held a 2-1 lead midway through Friday's contest, but wasn't able to put away the second-seeded Blue Devils. Sparked by stellar play in right field by Macy Crum -- which included a rocket of a throw to cut down a potential third Wildcats run at home plate -- and timely hitting provided by Katelyn Brandon, Mooresville rallied to win on its home field and advance to the third round. Mooresville (24-1) will host No. 10 Alexander Central on Tuesday, May 14. The Blue Devils opened the season with a 4-1 victory versus Alexander Central on Feb. 26.
