Lady Redskins Play At UIS Spring Slam

Posted

With rain outs on Thursday and Friday, the Nokomis Lady Redskins finally hit the field again on Saturday with a busy day of tournament play in the Spring Slam at the UIS Sports Complex in Springfield. 

The first game of the day was against The Lady Blue Jays of Petersburg PORTA. The Blue Jays took the early lead in the first inning by scoring five. The Lady Redskins began to fight back scoring three runs of their own, but it would not be enough as they could not hold off the Lady Blue Jays. 

The Lady Blue Jays consistently added hits and the Lady Redskins ended up losing 13-3. Maddie Sowarsh went 2-for-3 during the game and Mia Fesser added a triple for the Lady Redskins. Emma Blaum was the pitcher for the Lady Redskins and had five strikeouts.

The next game of the day was against West Central. The Lady Skins once again fell behind early in the game. They held West Central at four runs, but the Skins couldn’t get their offense going. The final score was 4-0. 

Maddie Sowarsh, Emma Blaum, Delaney Keiser, and Mia Fesser all added hits for the Redskins. Maddie Sowarsh was the pitcher for the Lady Redskins and struck out eight.

The final game of the day was against Quincy Notre Dame. The Lady Redskins’ bats got hot during this game as they took the lead in the first inning. Quincy came back with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first and the Lady Redskins answered right back in the second.

This back and forth continued into the final innings when Quincy finally pulled ahead. The win would go to Quincy with a final score of 8-5. 

Maddie Sowarsh and Emma Blaum shared the pitching duties for this game and Emma Blaum, Emily Cesaretti, Alexa Cassidy, Mia Fesser, Delaney Keiser, and Karlie Wanger all added hits for the Skins.

The Lady Redskins have another busy week of play coming up with a rescheduled away game against Lincolnwood on Tuesday, an away game against Taylorville on Thursday, a home game against Edinburg on Friday and a home tournament on Saturday with Pana, Vandalia and St. Elmo.
