Truckee JV softball sweeps Quincy

Playing through 40-plus mph winds whipping through the Truckee area on Monday, the Truckee High JV softball team swept visiting Quincy out of Regional Park in a nonleague doubleheader, winning 11-1 and 11-4.

With Truckee schools out for Spring Break and many girls out of town, the Wolverines got some help from the varsity squad in the names of sophomores Rachel Zissimos and Amber Davy.

In Game 1, Zissimos and Miranda Baker took the mound and virtually shut down the Quincy batters, combining to hold their opponents to just one run on three hits with five strikeouts.

Offensively, the Wolverine batters were just as dominating, batting around in each of the first two innings and going up 11-1 after two innings. The game was called at 14-1 after four-plus innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.

Ashley McKechnie, Heather Fisher and Baker each had two hits for Truckee, with Fisher also knocking in three RBIs.

Quincy was able to keep the second game close for a while, and trailed just 5-4 after four innings. But Truckee batted around in the fifth to plate six runs and cruise to an 11-4 victory.

Davy led the Wolverine hitters with three hits, while Tracy Pearson, Sam Safford, Bailey LeClair and McKechnie each had two.

Zissimos threw the first six innings, getting five strikeouts while allowing four runs on four hits and three walks. Davy came in to work a one-hit seventh to preserve the victory.
