BLANCHESTER – Rianna Mueller pitched a two-hitter as Blanchester defeated Clark Montessori 10-0 Wednesday in a Division III Sectional game at BHS.
The Ladycats, 5-18 on the year, will meet No. 9 Williamsburg 5 p.m. Monday in a Cincinnati Sectional championship game at Indian Hill High School.
Mueller struck out a season-best nine and did not walk a batter in her five inning complete game.
“Rianna pitched another solid game,” BHS coach Jamey Grogg said. “We did a nice job of putting the ball in play and putting pressure on their defense and getting some timely hits to take advantage of their mistakes.”
Grogg noted Kassidy Abney’s tw0-hit, two-RBI game as well as Lana Roy’s patience in drawing three walks. Elecia Patton also took away two would-be Clark Montessori hits with outstanding plays at shortstop, Grogg said.
