The Cardinal Ritter Softball Team had a back in forth battle with Indiana Crossroads Conference rival, Scecina Memorial High School on Tuesday but came through with a huge 9-7 win. This is the first time they have knocked off the powerhouse Crusaders squad in a number of years and is a good sign for things to come this year.
The Raiders offense was clicking all day and was capped off by Brooke “Ain’t No Bologne” Belloni came up in the bottom of the 6th to drill a 3 run homerun to put the Raiders ahead by 2.
The warm sun brought the Raiders 11 hits on the day. Leading the offense was Belloni and Annie “The Natural” Kluemper who both went 3-4 on the day with Kluemper adding 3 stolen bases. Jenna “Pure Athlete” Purichia and Riley Heim both added 2 hits apiece.
