The Cardinal Ritter Softball Team began their City tournament on Saturday and showed they are ready to do some damage as they beat Heritage Christian 8-1. The Lady Raiders scored 6 runs in the 2nd inning led by Megan McCall who singled on a 0-1 count, scoring a run and opening the flood gates. Annie “The Natural” Kluemper and Lauren “Steamin’” Beaman also had singles followed by a Jenna “Pure Athlete” Purichia rocket down the third baseline that would still be going if it wasn’t for the fence.
Beaman pitched 7 innings, only surrendering 1 run on 3 scattered hits and a strike out. Purichia and McCall led the offense with multiple hits each.
