The Lewis Central softball team claimed their first win away from home on a beautiful Saturday Morning over Lawton-Bronson 7-2.
The Titans used some great at bats to get an early lead on the Eagles as L.C. ended the game with 10 hits. Lewis Central coach Hannah Cole says the team came in with good focus and composure, thus leading to a solid overall game.
“We were a lot more relaxed and confident at the plate,” Cole said. “We looked amazing on defense as well. We made a lot of great plays in this game thanks to a lot of communication from the girls.
“We started hot right away with the bats. Since we were the visiting team, we got to score first and that is exactly what we did. Haley Bach set us up with a hit right down the middle which got things started and got the rest of the girls pumped. We just looked really confident. We were looking for our pitches and hit lots of line drives and took advantage of open bases and just played our game at the plate and defensively.”
Defensively Cole gave high praise for senior Paige Rodewald who made some great plays along the third baseline. Cole also was excited for sophomore Brooklyn Damgaard who earned her first varsity win on the mound in this game.
“I’m very excited for Brooklyn. She did a great job pitching to our senior catcher Taylor Elam who also did a good job in helping Brooklyn to that win,” Cole said. “Taylor was also going after a lot of pop up foul balls and just gave a fantastic effort back there and she had some timely hits that helped us capitalize on scoring chances by bringing runners home.
