Lady Redskins Play In Opening Round Robin


The Nokomis Lady Redskins started their 2019 season at the annual round robin tournament with the Lady Cardinals of Warrensburg-Latham and the Lady Rockets of Rochester on Saturday, March 16. This tournament was supposed to be hosted at Nokomis this year, but due to field conditions it had to be moved to Rochester.

The first game of the day was against Warrensburg-Latham. During the first few innings, the Lady Redskins were fired up offensively and defensively. 

With clean plays and smart base running the Lady Skins took the lead right off the bat. It was not until around the third inning that a few mistakes cooled the bats and the momentum of the Lady Redskins. 

They couldn’t quite find their rhythm again and lost to the Lady Cardinals 1-11.

Emma Blaum, Madelyn Sowarsh and Mia Fesser each had a hit for the Lady Redskins. Madelyn Sowarsh also struck out six batters.

The next game of the day was against Rochester. The Lady Redskins had a tough time right off the bat trying to contain Rochester defensively. 

Toward the end of the game, there were good quick plays in the infield and great catches in the outfield. The bats also warmed up towards the end of the Rochester game with Emily Cesaretti, Sophia Keller, Karlie Wanger and Baylee Cesaretti each getting a hit. 

The late comeback of the Lady Redskins was not enough as they lost 12-2. Emma Blaum pitched the Rochester game and did a good job against the well-rounded team.

Weather permitting, the Lady Redskins will be at home on Wednesday, March 20, to face the Gillespie Miners.
