The weather was nice and the light wind made it a great day, but to make the day better the Lady Raiders won. The Cardinal Ritter Softball team beat Ben Davis Giants 7 – 4. In the first and second innings both teams were at one but in the third inning the Lady Raiders collected two runs. In the fourth inning the Giants went ahead by two runs making it 2 -4. Cardinal Ritter wasted no time getting those runs back as they collected 2 in the bottom half of the fourth and 3 in the fifth while blanking Ben Davis the rest of the game.
The offense was led by Annie “The Natural” Kluemper and Taylor “The Falcon” Faulkenberg, each amassing 2 hits and an RBI. Kluemper had a triple and added a run as well. Megan McCall “Me Maybe” had 2 hits while Riley Heim, Lauren “Steamin” Beaman each added hits. Chloe “Ole… Ole, Ole” Olejnik had the blast of the night hitting a towering home run to left scoring three runs to put the game out of reach.
All the of the softball team did good even just supporting one another. Beaman picked up the win coming in for Faulkenberg in the 3rd inning striking out 9.
