It’s perhaps the greatest single-day double-sport performance in West Virginia high school history.
Nitro Junior Lena Elkins pitched her team to a victory over No. 1 Herbert Hoover, then cracked a game-winning walk-off home run in the second game of a doubleheader before scoring 10 decisive points in the Wildcats first-ever state championship victory over undefeated No. 1 Fairmont Senior.
Veteran West Virginia sports journalists say they can’t recall a single-day effort that equals what Elkins accomplished.
Prim Law, in conjunction with Pikewood Creative, is proud to share the story of Lena Elkins’ Double Play.
