By SUE RIEDER
The Ram softball team ended their regular season with a 10-4 win over Nevada on July 6. The game was to be played in Nevada, but it was moved to Jefferson when the Cub’s field was too wet. The win improves the team’s conference record to 17-1. Their 27 regular season wins is the most in the history of school’s softball program.
Nevada took an early 4-1 lead in the first inning, on three hits and a Ram error, but the Cubs never scored again, while Greene County put up at least one run every inning but the sixth. Lead off hitter Carleigh Paup drove in three runs with two singles and a triple. Hannah Onken homered and singled, driving in two runs, and Emma Saddoris had a solo home run for one RBI. Other Ram players getting hits were Kayla Mobley, one single, one RBI, Emily Christensen, one single and one RBI, Bailey Godwin, two singles, and Sydney Koch, two singles, one RBI. This was Koch’s first appearance in the last several weeks after breaking a finger in the Ram's game in Colfax on June 17.
Marissa Promes got her 26th pitching win of the year, giving up five hits and two earned runs. Promes struck out four, hit one batter with a pitch, and issued no walks.
Greene County will begin postseason play on July 8 when they meet Pocahontas Area in Jefferson at 7 p.m.
