Making the journey to Pierz Monday, May 6, was well worth it for the Eden Valley-Watkins softball team, as they swept a double-dipper from the Pioneers, 7-0 and 10-3. Coach Dave Dziengel was happy with the girls’ performance. “We combined 6 hits with 7 walks to come out ahead in game one. Baylee Lahr did a nice job of keeping the Pierz hitters off balance, effectively throwing her change up as she collected 4 strikeouts without giving up a walk.”
The EV-W gals kept their foot on the pedal, racking up 10 runs in the second game and making the day’s total, 17-3. “The bats came alive as we collected 11 hits in game two. Brook Stang hit a 2-run homerun and had 4 RBI for the day. We played error-free ball during both games. Baylee Lahr again collected 4 strikeouts without giving up a walk. Ashley Huschle was 3 for 3, scoring 2 runs,” Dziengel said.
