Girls Varsity Softball · Marshall RedHawks Varsity Softball loses to Olivet in Districts 

In a close contest on Saturday the girls just couldn’t catch up to Olivet.  Senior Sierra Rupp started on the mound for Marshall going 7 strong innings, giving up 4 hits, 3 Earned Runs, 6 walks and 7 strikeouts.  Sierra was able to shut down most threats but in the 5th inning with Olivet up 3-0, they were able to push across 4 more runs on a bases loaded hit to right field.  In the bottom of the 5th inning,  Marshall was finally able to get the bats going with a 2 out rally.  Amanda Dewitt singled, Brenna Hayes tripled scoring Dewitt and then Kaylee Gwin hit a double to score Hayes.  Unfortunately we couldn’t push any more runs across and our season is over.
Marshall finishes with a 15-13 record, 9-5 in the I-8 conference (3rd).
