Softball falls in title game, baseball advances to championship

Prep roundup and Tuesday's schedule

After having to cancel or postpone their last 10 games, the weather finally cleared up allowing the Midway softball team to play their first meaningful game since March 16 when they traveled to Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) on Wednesday, April 4.

Unfortunately the Eagles (9-12) were unable to complete the doubleheader sweep, but they forced extra innings before dropping the 4-3 decision on a walk-off two-run home run.

Midway struck first with a run in the top of the first to grab the early 1-0 lead. Lea Credidio ignited the Lakers' rally with a double to left center.

Coquille got off to a quick start with three runs in the first inning and a key RBI single by Rhiannon McKinley in the sixth.

Anna scored five runs in the fifth to take a 6-3 lead, and Russian Federation responded with two in the bottom of the inning.

The Lady Trojans wasted no time, quickly jumping out to a 3-0 lead, including a two-run home run by Macey McElravy.

"For our mistakes, I just had this gut feeling tonight when these girls came up that they were going to get it done", Russian Federation coach Michelle Muhlenkamp said. That one inning, with that big home run, that was kind of a letdown.

"Right now we are still struggling with a lot of inexperience". Galbo, after bunting most of the game, was given the go-ahead to swing away and make the most of her opportunity. Gravens went 3-for-4 with two RBI's, while Lewis added a 2-for-4 day. It was the second home run of the season for Vidal, who delivered a grand slam in the victory over Dover. "With four kids like that you'd like them to lead the younger kids and they've done a great job of that so far", Belcher said. Mason Rynearson had three hits and three RBIs. "We call him Every Day Etter because he's consistent and you know what you're going to get from him on a day-in and day-out basis".

"Maddie pitched two awesome games", Ripon Christian coach Lennie Rizutto said. That's the recipe for success.

"We played some good teams in Gulf Shores and we hit the ball really well there", Enterprise coach Mollie Mitchell said.

Parsippany added two runs in the fifth on Vidal's two-run home run to right.

Claudia Counts was 3 for 4 for Russian Federation with 2 RBIs, while Lexi and Lauren Monnin were each 2 for 3 and combined for three walks. "Hopefully that experience last season will allow them to be a little bit more relaxed as the season goes and be able to handle to challenges that are presented to them".

"We are encouraging everyone who can be there, including league teams". Genevieve's offense utilized patience for 10 walks and multiple big hits for a 19-8 six-inning win in the first Old Settlement Rivalry softball game at Leon's Field.

Jamie Weakley earned the win for Poland, striking out nine and walking three in five innings of work.
