BLANCHESTER – Accurate pitching, error-free defense and good hitting.
All part of a good day on the softball diamond Friday for the Blanchester Ladycats, who were 8-2 winners over Bethel-Tate in SBAAC National Division play.
Rianna Mueller scattered nine hits but did not walk a batter. The defense made all the plays. And the offense banged out 12 hits with seven different players contributing.
“It is always nice to get a win on the night we honor the seniors before the game,” BHS manager Jamey Grogg said. “Rianna pitched a great game and we played error free defense behind her, including Quynn Dawley who made two really nice catches at shortstop.
“Offensively we did a great job at the plate; we put a lot of balls in play and put pressure on their defense all game.”
Olivia Potts had three hits and drove in two runs. Mueller led with three RBI.
