Rising Sun’s Bryce Kendrick-

Lindsay Montgomery hit a 2-run homer, scored twice and made four defensive assists.

Sydney Pitts threw only the first inning after pitching six innings in game one.  She was on a pitch limit heading into sectional.  Cora Poling tossed the final 3-2/3.  Both players had a base hit.  Tyrrah Miller singled twice and had one RBI.

The score doesn’t reflect it, but we had a good offensive game against a ranked 4A opponent.  We hit the ball very well against the Marauders’ top pitcher with seven hits plus several other hard hit balls right at people.

It was a good two games for us overall despite being a little sloppy on the defensive side.  I’d like to see us clean up our field play for sectional.
