JV softball runs into stiff competition
The Truckee High junior varsity softball team ran into a fundamentally sound Quincy squad that took both ends of a doubleheader, 12-3 and 11-3, at River View Sports Park in Truckee on Tuesday.
The losses ended a six-game winning streak for the Wolverines, who are now 9-1 in league and 9-3 overall.
Truckee had only one hit in Game 1, a two-run double to left off the bat of Allee Macrorie.
Despite the lack of offense, the Wolverines managed to keep the game close, trailing 5-3 through five innings. But Quincy scored four runs in the sixth and another three in the seventh to seal the victory.
Although the Wolverines had several hits in Game 2, Quincy held them scoreless until the seventh, when the Trojans changed pitchers and allowed three runs. But it was too little too late.
Truckee’s Lauryl Rudolph, Hannah Zusy, Hailey Petzoldt and Heather Fisher each had a hit.
On the day, the Trojans were dominant all over the field. Their pitchers allowed only five Truckee hits, their defense turned four double plays and they had 31 hits.
