WAWASEE SOFTBALL THUMPS CONCORD
Wawasee softball jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead on Concord and didn’t let up in a 10-4 win Tuesday night at the Wawasee softball complex.
The game, which was postponed to Tuesday because of Monday rain, had Wawasee score four runs in the first inning and two more in the second inning before Concord could respond. Concord cut the lead to 7-4 with a pair of runs in the sixth, but the Lady Warriors (10-10, 4-3 NLC) dropped a three-spot in the bottom of the frame to put the game out of reach.
Gabi Routson led Wawasee in both phases, cracking a pair of doubles and a homer, scoring four runs and driving in three as well as striking out nine Lady Minutemen in the circle. Madi Anderson added a homer and three RBIs and Sam Malik doubled and scored three runs for Wawasee.
Sammy Swain led Concord (8-7, 4-3 NLC) with three hits and a run batted in.
Concord’s JV held Wawasee to just two hits in a 13-2 romp.
