By SUE RIEDER
Greene County’s varsity softball team started postseason play by defeating Pocahontas Area 10-2 in Jefferson on July 8. Marissa Promes had a great night and was the winning pitcher. She gave up one earned run, while striking out 10 batters, walking none, and giving up three hits. The highly regarded pitcher improved her season pitching record to 27-3.
The Rams pounded the ball all evening, and four players had multiple hits in the game. Emily Christensen and Tressa Rasmussen both had a single and a double and combined for five RBI. Marissa Promes drove in one run with her two singles, and leadoff batter Carleigh Paup also ripped two singles. Other Greene County hits were a double from Emma Saddoris and a single by Bailey Godwin.
“ I was pleased with our pitching and hitting tonight,” said Coach Tom Kennedy. “ We hit the ball well all through the line-up, but we need to clean up our mistakes if we want to keep winning.”
The Rams improved their season record to 28-6 and will host Kuemper Catholic (20-13) in Jefferson on July 10. Kuemper was a 21-17 winner over East Sac County in nine innings on Wednesday night.
