The Cardinal Ritter softball team defeated Speedway on Senior Night Wednesday with a score of 15-10. Prior to the game the Lady Raiders honored their two seniors, Maddie Potts and Abby Downard for their hard work at Cardinal Ritter.
The score was tied at 6 in the fifth, but the Lady Raiders broke it open for the eventual win for Jenna “Pure Athlete” Purichia who threw 3 2/3 innings. Taylor “The Falcon” Faulkenberg pitched well at the start of the game and also went 4-4 at the plate to lead the Lady Raiders in offense.
The Lady Raiders offense was a juggernaut collecting 16 hits on the day. Chloe Olejnik went 2-3 with a team leading 3 RBI. Following Olejnik in having multiple hits were Annie “The Natural” Kluemper, Carson Hiem and the two seniors Potts and Downard.
The game Friday has been postponed so their next game will be Saturday at the City Tournament.
