The Thunder Basin Bolts repeated as the Wyoming High School Softball state champions last weekend in Gillette.

The Bolts defeated Cheyenne East in the championship game, 9-8. They got out to a 6-0 lead, but East rallied and tied it. Kalissa Terrell's go-ahead RBI single in the top of the seventh was the difference.

WyoPreps visited with seniors Ella Partlow and Emma Kimberling. They discussed the feeling of another title, what it took to win the game, and more, in the video above.

We also caught up with head coach Doug Cox to get his reaction.

Thunder Basin went 4-0 on the weekend to clinch their second straight state championship. They finished 22-4.

Cheyenne East was the runner-up, while Campbell County took third place.

We have several photos from the championship day, May 20, 2023, in Gillette at the Energy Capital Sports Complex.
