The THS softball team traveled to Waupaca to finally hit the diamond, but their hosts opened up an early 6-0 lead on the way to an 11-1 triumph.
“First of all, it’s great to finally play softball on a softball diamond,” THS coach John Larson said. “The Hatchets overall played well defensively. There were some mistakes, but for the first time on a field, I thought the girls did very well.
“Offensively, we struggled with only two hits. We weren’t selective at the plate and never really hit the ball very hard. Pitching was very inconsistent.”
Alex DuPlayee (9 H, 4 K, 8 W, 7 ER in 5 I) took the loss, and Sydney Myre (1 H, 1 W, 2 ER in 1 I) relieved. Stephanie Schoone and Myre each went 1-2 at the plate.
