WASHINGTON CH — After a slow start, Blanchester picked up steam and defeated Washington 8-1 Tuesday for its first softball win of the season.
The non-league win puts the Wildcats at 1-8.
“It’s nice to finally get that first win,” BHS manager Jamey Grogg said. “Bailey Dawley pitched another solid game, especially from the third inning on. It took a few innings for the hitting to come around but we were able to take the lead in the sixth and then broke things open in the seventh.”
Quynn Dawley had a three-run double in the seventh and Bailie Bare belted her first career homerun. Alayna Davenport had a nice catch on a line drive at third base, said Grogg.
