Lady Redskins Score Regional Win Before Falling To Hawks


The Nokomis Lady Redskins began regional play at home on Monday, May 13. Their first match was against the Okaw Valley Lady Timberwolves. 

Once again, the Lady Redskins would find themselves in the lead during the second inning. Defense would be a crucial part of this game with the scores being so low. Okaw Valley would attempt to take back the lead, but it would be futile. 

The Lady Redskins played well together and kept themselves in the lead. The Lady Redskins won 2-1, advancing them to the second round of regionals.

Emily Cesaretti, Baylee Cesaretti, Delaney Keiser, Mia Fesser, and Alexa Cassidy would all add hits for the Lady Skins’ victory.

Madelyn Sowarsh would pitch for the Lady Redskins and struck out five.

The Lady Redskins continued play the very next day as they traveled to Okaw Valley to face the Lady Hawks of Macon-Meridian. The Lady Skins would take advantage of the slow start by Macon-Meridian, taking the lead 3-0. 

They would hold the lead until the third inning, when the Lady Hawks came back and tied up the game. The Lady Hawks slowly added runs and ended up beating the Lady Redskins 13-3.

Madelyn Sowarsh, Emily Cesaretti and Baylee Cesaretti would add hits for the Lady Redskins. Madelyn Sowarsh pitched for the Lady Redskins.

Even though the Lady Redskins are done with regionals, their season is not over yet. The Lady Redskins have one more conference game against Alton Marquette to make up next week.
