MONA SHORES HIGH SCHOOL: 7
Dux Varsity Softball clinch the OK Green Conference Championship by beating Mona Shores 16-7 in final game of conference play!
Alexa Brott collected the conference win on the mound. She threw seven innings allowing seven runs on eight hits, striking out four and walking three. "Alexa had to fight on the mound tonight. She would tell you she didn't pitch her strongest game, but sometimes it doesn't take that when you have a good team behind you and supporting you all the way."
The Dux bats were not held quite in the second game as they put up sixteen runs on thirteen hits. They were led by Lily Brower who went 5 for 5 and hitting the cycle! She scored five runs and collected 4 RBIs. She had a single, two doubles, a triple, and a homerun in the victory. "Lily really turned it up in game two tonight. She is a senior leader, and tonight when the team needed someone, she was the spark."
Two other Dux went long in the game, Taylor Zwagerman in the second and Carly Sleeman in the fourth. Zwagerman went 2 for 5 with 2 RBIs. Sleeman went 1 for 1 with 3 RBIs and three walks. Brott was the other Dux hitter with multiple hits as she went 2 for 4 with a single and a double. Jordyn Smeyers, Morgan Patrick, and Addison Verplank all contributed hits in the victory.
"This team has played for each other all season long. It was a tough first game as our bats struggled, but the girls bounced right back and won the Championship with a well played game. We are so proud of them and all of their accomplishments so far this season!"
