Softball struggles in three losses
The Wildcat softball team struggled to put runs on the board in three home games last week, falling to Baldwin-Woodville 16-2 Monday, April 8, and dropping a doubleheader to Hudson, 13-0 and 18-0, in their first Big Rivers Conference action of the season Tuesday, April 9.
The Cats were supposed to travel to Wisconsin Dells for a tournament Saturday, April 13, but the games were cancelled due to the snow storm. They're scheduled to play a BRC doubleheader Thursday, April 18, in Menomonie and visit Prescott for a nonconference game Monday, April 22.
Last Monday Eryn Herrera and Ali Schretenthaler had RBI singles in the bottom of the fifth inning but Baldwin had built a 16-run lead by then to make the final 16-2. Schretenthaler had two hits in the loss while Herrera, Jade Irgens and Ana Smith had one each. Taryn Gullickson struck out one and walked four while taking the loss in the circle.
Lily Griffin had the only Wildcat hit in Tuesday's first game against Hudson, while Irgens, Smith and Sydney Seeley each singled in the nightcap. Gullickson took the pitching loss in both games.
