BOURBON â€” With a young lineup and a roster full of injuries, Triton has sometimes had trouble fielding the ball this season.
Luckily for the Lady Trojans, theyâ€™ve been able to make up for it at the plate.
Tritonâ€™s batting order produced 13 hits â€” including six during a six-run fourth inning â€” to help offset five errors, and the Trojans rallied past visiting Knox Monday in the two teamsâ€™ Northern State Conference opener in Bourbon, 11-10.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth softball team didnâ€™t have any problems hitting the ball in the conference opener last night; it was when the hits came that caused the problems.
The Lady Pilgrim offense couldnâ€™t find a timely hit as it left eight runners on base â€” five in scoring position â€” in a 7-2 loss to visiting Elkhart Memorial.
