In a doubleheader on Tuesday at Mason, the Varsity Softball team split a doubleheader.
GAME 1: The girls came out strong getting runs in each of the first 4 innings. In the bottom of the 6th, Mason rallied to score 10 runs and take the lead for good. Kaylee Gwin pitched 6 innings giving up 11 ER and 5 BB while striking out 4. Izzy Franks, Preslee Riddle, Brenna Hayes and Courtney Fuller each had 2 hits in the game with Riddle hitting her 2nd home run of the season in the 3rd inning.
GAME 2: We saw a determined team come out hot and stay hot all game. Preslee Riddle started her first career varsity game on the mound going 5 innings, scattering 13 hits, giving up 8 ER, 4 BB and 1 strikeout. At the plate: Franks 3-5 (1 Home run, 4 RBIs), Hayes 4-4 (3RBIs), Emma Galloway 3-4 (2 doubles)and Gwin 2-3 (2RBIs).
With the win, Marshall is 15-12 and guaranteed to have a winning season. We also finished with a record of 9-5 in the I-8 conference for 3rd place.
