“The team started off slow but kept battling and found their power in the fourth inning scoring five runs and never looked back,” said Coach Carla Wentworth. “Elle White, our seventh grader, was impressive at the plate today hitting the first over-the-fence home run of the season and finishing only a double shy of the cycle. Several players made key defensive plays to stop scoring threats and ended the game with a pick off at third base. Overall, another great game for the entire team showing determination and high energy.”
