Nate Lakes, a junior, had two hits, including a double, scored twice and drove in four runs. Alex Meyer, a sophomore, had two hits, with a double, and scored two runs.

“We hit well,” WHS coach Dustin James. “Greenfield made a couple of errors early that allowed us to gain some confidence and guys began to hit their pitches. I was proud of the adjustments our players made between today and last Saturday at Little Miami. We have a lot of games scheduled in the next week and it is good to find a groove at the beginning of league play.”
