BEEKMANTOWN -- Kayleigh McGovern tossed a two-hitter Monday afternoon and Beekmantown wrapped up the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference Division I softball crown with a 4-1 win over Peru.

The Eagles (13-5 overall) improved their league record to 9-2 and won the division on a tie-breaker over Northeastern Clinton, which edged out a 6-5 win over Saranac. It was the first Division I title for head coach Greg Myers since becoming coach in 1989. During that time, however, the Eagles have won four sectional championships.

McGovern struck out 10, walked three and hit one batter.

Lindsy Chatland, Kassandra Costin and Morgan Kowalowski led the Eagles with two hits each, with Chatland getting a double. Samantha Warner added a triple and Kelsey Bradish a double in a 10-hit attack.

Courtney Bouyea played a solid game behind the plate for the Eagles, throwing out two runners.

Jessica Ewald accounted for both Peru hits in the game. The losing pitcher was Sacha LaBounty.

Peru (5-10, 3-8) scored a run in the first inning before the Eagles took the lead for good with two in the third. Kowalowski led off with a single, Warner put down a sacrifice bunt with the two runners advancing to second and third, respectively, on a throwing error, Costin singled in a run, Rian Jock bunted for a hit and Bradish connected for a sacrifice fly.

In the fourth, with two out, Beekmantown went up by three runs when Kowalowski singled, Warner tripled in a run and Costin rapped a RBI single.
