Regina pitched once more on May 14, at the Parkchester Little League Field in a 13-7 loss against the surging girls from Adlai Stevenson (15-3).

Stevenson ends the season in second place.
On May 17, the Lady Governors (16-2) claimed first place and avenged an earlier season loss with a big 15-3 win at Clinton.
