Shannon Caffrey and defense in game 1
Rock Creek Mustang JV softball –
In games played on Thursday, April 25th, the Mustang JV softball team traveled to Abilene and swept the Cowgirls in two of the best games of their season. In the opening game, the mustangs were victorious 10-6. Leading the way was Shannon Caffrey with a 2-3 effort. Mariah Kinderknecht doubled, singled were hit by Dakota Nelson, Ariel Petty, Alexis McCormick and Megan Thompson. Ariel Petty continues to be hot in the SS position for the mustangs – involved in 3 double plays in the double header. Caffrey pitched for the win, striking out 5. Game two was more offensive from the mustangs, winning the nightcap easily by 17-9. 14 hits, including 2 singles each from Megan Thompson, Bethany Goehring, Cassidy Cheever, Amber Nowakowski and Mariah Kinderknecht sparked the offense. Alexis McCormick had the lone extra base hit, doubling to drive home 3. Megan Thompson notched 3 stolen bases. Ariel Petty had 3 RBI’s. Amber Nowakowski earned the win, pitching 4 of the innings, striking out one, Saige Biedenbender shared the duties for the latter innings, striking out 2. The mustangs are now 7-6 on the year. After starting the year 0-6, the mustangs are on a 7 game winning streak. Kudos for the two solid wins in Abilene!
The JV team will be in action at the Holton JV tournament held on May 4th. Those games will conclude the 2013 JV season. As the defending champions from that tournament last year, the mustangs hope tradition continues as they finish their season in Holton.
