A tough start for Warriors

Winamac softball opens with lopsided loss to Triton

With five starters back from last year’s sectional championship team, Winamac’s softball team enters the season with big expectations.

But the Warriors did not get off to the start they were looking for Tuesday, as they were handed an 18-0 defeat in five innings by Triton at the Winamac Town Park field.

“It was the first game of the season. We’ve got a whole lot more to play,” Winamac coach Jenni Belcher said. “We’ve got all kinds of time to see what we can do and improve. Things didn’t go our way. We need to get things pointed in the right direction.”

The Warriors managed just one hit on the night, a single by Kallie Rasmussen.

“We didn’t put the ball in play enough. We had way too many strikeouts,” Belcher said. “We need to do a better job at the plate.”

Triton, which also was a sectional champion a year ago, bashed out 17 hits including three home runs.

Bethany Brogdon got the start for the Warriors and allowed 11 runs on 11 hits and five walks in three innings, striking out three. Rasmussen allowed seven runs on six hits and one walk in two innings, striking out two.

Winamac travels to LaCrosse on Friday.

Pioneer 8, Faith Christian 0

Katie Bingaman tossed a three-hit shutout in Lafayette, striking out nine and walking two.

Brooklyn Mehrley had two hits and two RBIs for the Class A No. 5 Panthers (2-1). Kennedy Nies added a two-run double and a single.

“We played a good game defensively,” Pioneer coach John Bingaman said. “They are better this year. They entered 2-1 and their only loss was to Southmont.”

Pioneer hosts No. 10 Carroll and Class 3A No. 10 Rochester on Saturday.

Logansport vs. Harrison

Today’s game has been moved to Harrison with a 6 p.m. start time.
