Varsity SB team remains unbeaten with win over Saydel
By SUE RIEDER
The Ram softball team got their twelfth consecutive win when they won a road game over Saydel 6-2 on June 10. The team got eleven hits in the game and took advantage of three Eagle errors to have a lot of base runners. Emily Christensen, Kayla Mobley, Sydney Koch, and Jenna Beyers, who replaced an ailing Emma Saddoris, all connected for two hits, while Marissa Promes, Tressa Rasmussen and Carleigh Paup each ripped one single. Promes, Mobley, Christensen, and Paup were each credited with an RBI.
Promes, who improved her season record to 11-0, gave up three hits and two earned runs. She struck out seven batters, walked one, and hit three batters with pitches. The Rams played flawless defense, but stranded eleven runners on base.
Greene County’s third ranked team may get their toughest challenge of the season on Friday when they play Class 3A’s fifth ranked team East Marshall (LeGrand) on the Mustang’s home diamond. This game was not arranged until Thursday afternoon after the weather caused both teams to call off their conference contests for that night. The Rams last met East Marshall at last summer’s state softball tournament when Greene County recorded a 10-3 victory to finish third. The junior varsity teams will play at 6 p.m. with the varsity contest to follow.
