Girls Varsity Softball · Lancer Softball Falls to Lutheran Northwest

The varsity girls softball team squared off in their first league action against league favorite Lutheran Northwest.  The Crusaders beat the young Lancer team 10-0. A few critical fielding mistakes and errors led to the lopsided loss.  The Lancer softball record drops to .500 at 1-1 on the season.

Rebekah Crane was the losing pitcher but had a strong outing keeping her team in it as long as possible. She recorded 5 strikeouts, only gave up 2 walks, six hits with 3 earned runs.  Sophia Patzer was the lone player to make it on base earning a walk. Nicole Vaught, Rebekah Crane, and Mackenzie Saylor all made contact on the ball all night long, but just couldn’t get them to drop in for a hit. Autumn Maley made a nice line drive catch in her first time in centerfield.
The team looks to rebound next week in more league action against Parkway Christian.
