JV softball earned the victory last night despite allowing Wellington High School to score three runs in the first inning. The Shoregals pulled away for good with five runs in the third inning. Katie McNulty singled on a 3-2 count, scoring two runs and Allison Peachman singled on a 2-2 count, scoring one run. The Shoregals racked up eight total hits for the day. Melanie Carr, Katie McNulty, and Mallory McClellan each had multiple hits. Mel Carr led the team with two stolen bases, as they ran wild on the base paths with six stolen bases.
Allison Peachman, pitching her first game at the JV level, got the win for Shoregals. She lasted seven innings, allowing six hits and five runs while striking out four.
Great job Shoregals! What a great opening day game!
