Midland and Morningside split Softball Doubleheader

Paige Lansink scattered seven hits and walked one batter over six innings to get the pitching win. Dummer's three RBIs was the extent of the Dragons' game-one offense, as no runner advanced past second after the fourth.

In the bottom of the frame, Jaclyn Cortese led off with a single and the Ravens quickly got runners on second and third for Allison Shaw to drive home Cortese from third. LaBlanc will be trying to iron those things out before the next game and she will have some time to do it. Ball tripled home one run, while Petty tripled home a pair.

Left-handed ace Chelsea McManaway held the Thundering Herd scoreless for 6.2 innings before giving up a two-run home run in the seventh.

Hannah Solge drove in a run with a fielder's choice before Zoey Jones tied the game by bouncing a drive off the center-field wall, bringing in the tying runs.

Proctor softball pitcher Amanda Reynolds winds up for a pitch during Thursday's matchup against Mount St. Joseph Academy at St. Peter's Field in Rutland.

Batting third, Park senior first baseman Heather Degler had back-to-back doubles and scored twice in the fourth inning. Ottawa plated one more run in the top of the fifth, before the Swedes would score their final run of the game in the bottom of the sixth. In the first game, they only made two errors and in the second game they made just one.

Highlights - For South Vermillion, VanLannan 2 for 4 with a double; McLeish 2 for 4 with a double; Terry 2 for 3; Caleb Panagouleas had a double.

Senior Skye Metzer smashed a home run for EHHS, going 1 for 4 with a run scored and 3 RBIs. With two out, Pitt put a runner on base with an error by senior Malea Bell at third. In Friday's championship game, the Tigers finally ran into a pitcher who had the answers as well as a team that took advantage of the slightest mistake.

Despite a 7-3 loss in the regular-season finale Wednesday night against Springfield in extra innings, the Wolverines enter the postseason 12-8 on the season and are now ranked sixth in the latest Division III power rankings.

Ward mashed three home runs, all coming in his first three at-bats.

Hampshire got on the board in the second with Shyann Strawderman lining a hard hit by the shortstop that rolled to the center-field fence for a triple.

After Gerdes and Ecker each walked, Foellner scored on a sacrifice fly ball by Hastings. Back at the top of the order, Sonnon knocked another double down the left field line to score Hooper and Ellebracht and put Tech up 6-0.

In the first game, Frontier jumped all over the Blue Devils with a bat-around, which produced seven runs in the opening inning.

Now Red Bank (13-6), at 2-0 in 6-AA, remains on track to be the top-seeded team in the district tournament for the first time in a long while. It is a long season and this team is far from flawless, but it's not insane to think they could go undefeated throughout the rest of conference play. However, they recovered and went on to beat Howard University April 10 in a doubleheader, 9-1 and 6-5.

Next - Sullivan (3-2) plays today in the Sullivan Invitational. Tanya Chavez was 3-3 with 1 RBI.
