"We're young, but we'll get there", said SMHS boss John Nichols.

"We as a team are looking forward to the big week". "I don't know what our deal was today". That senior pitcher and senior shortstop are incredible, probably two of the better ones we've seen all year especially that senior shortstop.

In the third inning, PBL scored three more runs. C-SC loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh, but Hannah Hollock's fielder's choice and Avery Johnson's strikeout didn't score a run. She struck out one batter and walked six. A three-run home run from Anna Kufta would make the difference on the offensive end, as Ryan Denhart turned in a complete game in the circle to earn the win.

Savannah Hawhee and Landes opened the Arabian second with back-to-back doubles in what became a nine-run inning, aided by a one-out error on a fly to left by Sturgeon, to put Pendleton Heights firmly in control. But this early deficit was of little concern to TKA. Casey Shaw had two hits and four RBIs and Andrew Krzanak added a 2-for-4 day with a double and an RBI. Tieman had two hits, a run and RBI; Kaganich had a single and run; Cania had a double, run and two RBIs; Houseman had a run and RBI; Griffith had a single and RBI; Westnedge had a single and run scored and Seal had a single. RBI singles from redshirt-sophomore outfielder Casey Harding and junior designated player Sydney Barker brought the score to 4-3 for UMass Lowell.

"We're just working on being fundamental every single time, defense not making stupid errors, at the plate, making sure we're not striking out, putting the ball in play, good hits and just focusing on improving every single day and peaking when it's right", Jefferson coach Tori Hutto said.

"She's been working really hard on her changeup".

"I think they did a great job". "We hit the ball but we didn't have anybody step up when we had people on base and make something happen".

"Usually, once we get going, we don't stop - we get hit after hit after hit", Webber said.

Erica Dambman had a home run and five RBIs.

Kennedy Nelson added an RBI single and Mac Correll singled. Penn had even more luck in the third inning, where a home run and a two-run double extended their lead to 5-1.

She went seven innings and gave up eight runs (none of them earned) on eight hits.

In four games K.V. has scored 71 runs.

Despite the lopsided final score, Kingston is no slouch of an opponent.

North Dakota State won game one 9-2, but South Dakota State bounced back for an 11-3 win in five innings in the second as the teams split Summit League softball doubleheader played Thursday, April 12, at Augustana University's Bowden Field.

The Ellsworth Panthers softball team (1-0) 15-runned the New Richmond Tigers in three innings to claim their first 2018 Middle Border Conference win on Thursday, April 12. "I wouldn't have believed you If you had told me we'd be 9-3 with our number one and two pitchers out for the year". Every one of their girls took good cuts, and every one of their defenders was ready to go. This was due to the strong pitching display from both teams, which lasted until the fourth inning.
