BOURBON â€” With a freshman inside the circle, Tritonâ€™s veteran squad needed to make plays behind her.
Instead, the Lady Trojans gave up nine errors in the drizzling wet conditions at their home field, and Rochester batters capitalized off 14 hits and nine bases on balls to rout their hosts 21-3 in five innings in the Zebrasâ€™ season opener Monday.
â€śWeâ€™ve got a freshman kid pitching and I understand that, so we have to play some defense behind her, and I thought our defense was not very good tonight,â€ť said Triton head softball coach Steve McBride.
BOURBON â€” Griffyn Carpenter has a pretty impressive resume, and he just keeps adding to it.
The 6-foot-1 Triton standout will play in the Hoosier Basketball Magazine Top 60 Workout on Sunday along with 7-1 Culver Military Academy center Chier Ajou.
BREMEN â€” The Lady Lions started their home schedule strong but couldnâ€™t hold on as Washington chipped away at a six-run deficit to eventually overcome its host 10-7 in eight cold, windy innings at Bremen Thursday.
â€śI think we started off good, jumped out quick and early and got off to a fast start, but I think after that we relaxed a little bit,â€ť said Bremen head softball coach Josh Walter. â€śI donâ€™t know if itâ€™s spring break break coming up or the weather or what it was, thinking about other things. I thought we were in good shape earlyâ€¦ and made mistakes at the end.â€ť
BREMEN â€” In a tie game in the bottom of the sixth inning in Thursdayâ€™s season opener, the Bremen baseball team came through with clutch hitting and base running when it mattered most.
A two-RBI triple by Dillon Mullen, a sacrifice-bunt RBI by Wes Burkholder and an RBI double by Eric Knepper delivered an 8-4 victory over Fairfield.
â€śItâ€™s great to get out here against a quality team like Fairfield and to come out with a win against them,â€ť Bremen coach Bo Hundt said.
DONALDSON â€” The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) released its first Division II softball poll of the season and the Lady Chargers of Ancilla College were listed as one of five teams receiving votes after the nationâ€™s top 20.
Ancilla entered Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Western Conference action over the weekend with a 10-4 record before dropping its first two conference games.
â€śItâ€™s an honor to be mentioned and recognized,â€ť commented Ancilla coach Scott Reese. â€śThe important thing is to make sure we are here at the end of the season too.â€ť
