Bats ring out as Lady Wolverines pummel HMS


Anna Fredrichsen clubbed a solo home run in the win over HMS.

South O'Brien struck fast and often in a four-inning romp over Hartley-Melvin-sanborn July 3 at hartley. The Wolverines tallied three runs in the first, four in the second, five in the third and two more in the fourth while blasting 12 hits despite the short number of innings. South O'Brien finishes the regular season with 25 wins and just three losses.

"We are hitting the ball very hard right now, which is great with tournament play starting," remarked Heather Struve, head coach of the Wolverines.

Delanie Coady grabs the bag to secure third base despite the tag effort of HMS fielder Hannah Jochims.

Eight batters got at least one hit in the win. Taryn Hintz had a big night, going 3-for-4 with five RBI's and two runs scored. Jordan Nieuwenhuis ripped a triple and a single, had a pair of RBI's, and her courtesy runner, Emily Chicoine, scored a run.

Hannah Dau laced a pair of singles, scored three runs and had an RBI. Anna Friedrichsen shot a solo home run to left field. Sydney Struve, Bailey Tjossem, Gabby Heeren, and Kaylee Jacobs all had singles. Courtesy runner Delanie Coady scored three runs.

Tjossem started out in the circle for two innings of play and gets the win. She allowed two hits and no runs. Struve came in for the last two innings and gave up two unearned runs in the third, while walking three and striking out three.
