It was another good night for Greene County baseball and softball teams, as they both won convincingly over varsity teams from Nevada on June 3. The baseball team pummeled the Cubs with 15 hits. Leading the Ram offense were Jordan Challen and Riah Nelsen who both connected for a double and two singles, and Alex Rasmussen, Jordan Hostetler, and Tyler Beger who all ripped two singles. Rasmussen, Beger, Hostetler, and Daric Whipple were credited with two RBI, while Nelsen and Reid Lamoureux each knocked in one run.
Senior hurler Riah Nelsen had another outstanding pitching performance. Nelsen gave up two hits, and no runs, while striking out nine batters and issuing no walks. Greene County improved to 4-1 in conference play, and is on the road at Winterset for a non-conference game tonight (June 4)
Greene County’s softball team extended their win streak to 8-0 with a 12-1 victory over the Cubs. Senior Marissa Promes got her seventh win of the season by giving up 1 hit, and one earned run, while striking out 10 and walking only one.
